Riassunto: 'The author's love of dance shines through these pages, sweeping the reader along with her own enthusiasm...This book emphatically and convincingly shifts the exploration of dance to centre-stage, providing a pioneering foundation for future work.' - Cathy Lebelska, Women's Studies Network 'Useful to dance students to place their knowledge of dance history and practise within a feminist perspective and, for the non-dance sociologist, it will provide an introduction to issues and concerns in the field.' - Leisure Studies Association A broad-ranging account of women's role and experience in dance which demolishes the myth that dance is a female art form by demonstrating the way in which it is dominated by male managers, choreographers and directors. While most dancers are women, for the most part they interpret male-constructed images rather than create them. This is not inevitable, however, the author argues; dance is a possible arena for feminist practice and women's liberation. 'Feminism, cultural studies, and dance analysis will all benefit from this reorientation.' - Janet Wolff
