The Routledge Companion to Dance Studies maps out the key features of dance studies as the field stands today, while pointing to potential future developments.

It locates these features both historically - within dance in particular social and cultural contexts - and in relation to other academic influences that have impinged on dance studies as a discipline. The editors use a thematically-based approach, which emphasizes that dance scholarship does not stand alone as a single entity, but is inevitably linked to other related fields, debates and concerns. Authors from across continents have contributed chapters based on theoretical, methodological, ethnographic, and practice-based case studies, bringing together a wealth of expertise and insight to offer a study that is both in-depth and wide-ranging.

Ideal for scholars and upper-level students of dance and performance studies, The Routledge Companion to Dance Studies challenges the reader to expand their knowledge of this vibrant, exciting interdisciplinary field.
