About this item

Throughout her book, McCarthy-Brown purveys an understanding that our bodies cannot move through space irrespective of our culture: the body is an invaluable and often dismissed repository of embodied cultural knowledge. Citing that today the American dancing body comes in all sizes, shapes, genders, non-genders, sexual orientations, and abilities, she exhorts dance educators to teach the American dancing body about the American dancing body. Ten chapters with epilogue are divided into three parts: how to create a culturally relevant classroom; culturally relevant teaching and critical dance pedagogy for classes pertaining to the dancing body; critical dance pedagogy and diversifying content and approaches to dance education.
