Folk Dances of Jamaica is a detailed practical and theoretical discussion of five Jamaican folk dances - the Kumina, Dinkie Minie, Quadrille, Bruckin's, and Revival. The book's strength and appeal lies in the care taken to introduce, describe and illuminate in detail these dances. The book is invaluable for the student of dance, providing as it does practical information on both technique and performance, and is illustrated with bold drawings by "H" Patten. The author herself trained as a dancer and her book was researched in traditional settings in Jamaica and at the Jamaica School of Dance, where she studied after graduating in Performing Arts from Leicester Polytechnic. She has maintained a strong interest in dance, becoming Dance and Mime Officer for East Midlands Arts in the late 1980s and then General Manager for Adzido Dance Ensemble. As Arts Council England's Director of Dance from 1994 - 2003, Hilary championed the policy, development and promotion of all forms of dance nationally and internationally, before widening her expertise through leadership roles in the arts and broader cultural and creative industries.

Dancing Postcolonialism presents the first in-depth critical and historical examination of the internationally renowned National Dance Theatre Company of Jamaica (NDTC) in the context of postcolonial theater. Combining a postcolonial theoretical framework with performance studies and dance analysis, the study examines the interrelationship of Jamaican modern dance theater aesthetics and the Caribbean's complex cultural genealogy since 1492. Addressing issues of postcolonial nationalism and Jamaican identity politics, the book provides the first comprehensive study of the NDTC's modern dance theater works as it situates dance theater choreography at the center of postcolonial independence politics and cultural theory in the Caribbean. Sabine Srgel (Dr. phil.) teaches the history and theory of theater and dance at Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz (Germany). Her current research includes intercultural corporealities, contemporary performance and postcolonial theory.

Dance in a World of Change: Reflections on Globalization and Cultural Differencewill help you -understand how dance instruction is affected by globalization; -discover the ways in which the discourse and curriculum of dance connect it to the critical, political, moral, and aesthetic dimensions of contemporary society; and -learn from the rich and generative set of experiences of international dance educators, choreographers, critics, and scholars. Dance in a World of Change: Reflections on Globalization and Cultural Differencepresents a range of international perspectives on dance pedagogy, the body, performance, and dance and culture. The text expands the discourse of dance that connects it to the critical, political, moral, and aesthetic dimensions of contemporary society, and it explores how globalization is influencing and shaping the future of dance. The contributing writers hail from around the world: South Africa, Brazil, Croatia, Ireland, Canada, Taiwan, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Holland, Jamaica, and the United States. They bring their distinguished records as dance educators, choreographers, critics, and scholars to this book as they address -a form of human empowerment or cultural resistance; -a means of recognizing diverse cultural experience and communicating common humanity; -an expression of social conflict, injustice, violence, and marginalization; and -an educational process that transcends the particular and encompasses commonality. As growing connections between diverse communities transform our sensibilities, people's assumptions about what is good and bad, beautiful and ugly, or rational and irrational are often challenged. The changes that result can produce new and sometimes startling forms of art, create new identities formed from disparate histories and experiences, and help people rethink how they came to value one dance form over another. As new forms of dance expression are created, dance educators are using these changes to illustrate to their students what they might mean. For example, cultural borrowing in dance and pedagogy has evoked questions concerning the meaning of the tradition itself: What is African dance? Is it African dance if it is taught by a non-African? Does it remain a cultural dance if it is performed simply as a dance and no longer as a story of the people? This text helps dance educators celebrate cultural traditions while recognizing the forces and forms that bridge our common experience. In part I of this book, contributors explore how traditional dance forms are being shaped by the global dance environment and how this environment is influencing new forms of popular dance. Part II takes a look at sexual orientation, racism, and prejudice and challenges the assumptions of what is normative. Multicultural issues as they relate to dance pedagogy are examined in part III, andpart IVhelps readers to transcend the differences between cultures and embrace the commonalities shared through dance. Each chapter includes an introduction and ending reflections that provide insight and create a place for dialogue. References, which are grouped by chapter at the end of the book, provide additional information for follow-up. Dance in a World of Changeis a catalyst for new thinking about dance among teachers, choreographers, and scholars in the field. Readers will experience the passion and excitement of the contributing writers, who delineate the connections that help form a global community.
