Dance on its Own Terms: Histories and Methodologies anthologizes a wide range of subjects examined from dance-centered methodologies: modes of research that are emergent, based in relevant systems of movement analysis, use primary sources, and rely on critical, informed observation of movement. The chapters emphasize dance history and core disciplinary knowledge in three categories of significant dance activity: performance and reconstruction, pedagogy and choreographic process, and notational and other written forms that analyze and document dance. Conceptually, each chapter also raises concerns and questions that point to broadly inclusive methodological applications. Engaging and insightful, Dance on its Own Terms represents a major contribution to research on dance.
Melanie Bales is Professor of Dance at The Ohio State University and author of The Body Eclectic: Evolving Practices in Dance Training (2007). Karen Eliot is also Professor of Dance at The Ohio State University and author of Dancing Lives: Five Female Dancers from the Ballet d'Action to Merce Cunningham (2007).
