Ageing, gender, embodiment and dance: Finding a balance

Schwaiger, E. (2012) Ageing, gender, embodiment and dance: Finding a balance. Palgrave Macmillan, London.

Abstract

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.
