Reviews

"Susan Foster is a new breed of dancer and choreographer."-- "New York Times"
"Foster proposes a context from which the reader might make, see, or write about dance."-- "CHOICE"
"No other dance book had posited an alternative aesthetic and historical framework beyond its own disciplinary content. In advance of the turn to the body in social theory, dance therefore became a major contributor to the rethinking of history advanced by new historicists, and an art form that could be "read" within the context of history and politics. . . . Although dance studies is a growing field for undergraduate studies, its critical status depends on texts such as Reading Dancing that can be debated more widely."-- "Times Higher Education"
