Women and Dance Summary


Women and Dance: Sylphs and Sirens by Christy Adair

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.

Women and Dance Reviews


'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 'Feminism, cultural studies, and dance analysis will all benefit from this reorientation.' - Janet Wolff Association
