About this book

Introduction

A broad-ranging account of women's roles 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 their own. This is not inevitable, however, the author argues; dance is a possible arena for feminist practice and women's liberation.
