This book features practicing dance educators, choreographers, critics and scholars, each of whom has a distinguished record of scholarship and practice in the field of dance education. They represent a spectrum of international perspectives on pedagogy, the body, performance, dance and culture. Culturally diverse backgrounds from areas of South Africa, Brazil, Croatia, Ireland, Canada, Taiwan, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Holland, Jamaica and the United States ensures a rich and generative set of experiences through which the themes of globalisation are pursued. This book expands on the discourse and curriculum of dance in ways that connect it to the critical, political, moral and aesthetic dimensions of our contemporary social lives. Many have written about and developed curriculum and choreography around issues of the self, others and our larger world.The phenomenon of globalisation that is influencing and shaping the future of dance can be examined and shown through critical issues addressed in the essays within this book. This book is part of a larger re-examination of the meaning and purpose of dance in a globalising world. It is a catalyst for new thinking about dance among teachers, choreorgraphers and scholars in the field.
