Abstract:

An anthology that spans Canadian dance history from pre-Confederation to the end of the twentieth century (over thirty articles by dance historians, theorists and professional practitioners) that examines the central aesthetic, social, political and economic issues that helped to define the development of dance in Canada. Long overdue, this anthology redresses the dearth of dance literature in Canadian Studies and other academic programs. Includes articles about the reconstruction of a lost ballet by Gweneth Lloyd that had been originally staged in Winnipeg in the 1940s, about how experimental dance was introduced to Toronto audiences by two former dancers with The National Ballet of Canada, about the reasons for the long and rocky saga of trying to find a foothold for theatrical dance in Nova Scotia, plus Françoise Sullivan's essay, "Dance and Hope", one of the first political treatises about dance written in Canada.
