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 that 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 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.

There are 7 main Parts or Sections, including some exciting authors and subjects, e.g. Catherine F. Botha on The Dancing Body, Power and the Transmission of Collective Memory in Apartheid South Africa;  Emma Redding on The Expanding Possibilities of Dance Science; Michèle Danjoux on . Choreosonic Wearables: Creative Collaborative Practices; Ramsay Burt on the HiddenHistory of Black British Dance; Sarah Whatley on Digital Preservation; Carol Brown on The Strangeness of Dancing; and Gerald Siegmund on Dance, Theater, and their Post-Medium Condition.
