Studies in Dance History


Studies in Dance History aims to further the goals of DSA by making widely available the rich and diverse scholarship that takes dance as its subject.

Ranging from new methods of historical inquiry to multiple theoretical perspectives, books 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 an informative education for the general reader.

Founded in 1988 as a scholarly journal, Studies in Dance History was redefined as a book series in 1994. It is now published by the University of Michigan Press. Listed below, in reverse chronological order, are titles that have been issued to date.
