Dance and Gender: An Evidence-Based Approach
by Wendy Oliver and Doug Risner

Through surveys, interviews, analyses of data from institutional sources, and research studies, this book provides concrete evidence about how gender impacts the daily lives of dancers, choreographers, directors, educators, and students. Dancers and dance scholars from the U.S., Australia, and Canada discuss equity in three areas: concert dance, the studio, and higher education. The contributors answer questions about the role of gender in various aspects of the field, including physical expression and body image, classroom experiences and pedagogy, and performance and funding opportunities.
