Ageing, Gender, Embodiment and Dance : Finding a Balance, Hardback Book

Ageing, Gender, Embodiment and Dance : Finding a Balance Hardback


This book explores the nexus between gender, ageing and culture in dancers practicing a variety of genres.

It challenges existing cultural norms which equate ageing with bodily decline and draws on an interdisciplinary theoretical framework to explore alternatives for developing a culturally valued mature subjectivity through the practice of dance.
