Studies in Dance History

Studies in Dance History volumes are published and distributed by the UW Press on behalf of the Society of Dance History Scholars.

Founded in 1988, Studies in Dance History aims to further the goals of the Society of Dance History Scholars by making widely available the extraordinarily rich and diverse scholarship that takes dance as its subject. Ranging from new methods of historical inquiry to multiple theoretical perspectives, volumes in the series answer a growing demand for works that provide fresh analytical perspectives on dancing, dancers, and dances in a global context. Each volume in the series is accessible to specialist and layperson alike, providing a valuable resource for scholars and a pleasurable education for the general reader.

Please send all inquiries to Sarah Davies Cordova, Chair, Editorial Board, Society of Dance History Scholars.

Directing the Dance Legacy of Doris Humphrey
The Creative Impulse of Reconstruction
Lesley Main

“This timely record of practiced-based approaches to restaging modern dance works contributes in valuable ways to the field of dance studies. Incorporating the theoretical, the methodological, and the practical, this study highlights the corporeality of the dance in relation to the history of staging, engagement, and bodies over time.”
—Dr. Sarah Davies Cordova, author of Paris Dances: Textual Choreographies in the Nineteenth-Century French Novel
