Studies in Dance History

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

Founded in 1988, Studies in Dance History aims to further the goals of the Dance Studies Association 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 Studies in Dance History Editor.
