Books on ballet tend to focus on performance. This book is about dancers; how their careers are made and unmade and what happens in dance companies offstage. The audience's perception of fairy-tale worlds onstage is far removed from the experience of the dancers themselves.

While dance has always been as demanding as contact sports, intuitive boundaries distinguish the two forms of performance for men. Dance is often regarded as a feminine activity, and men who dance are frequently stereotyped as suspect, gay, or somehow unnatural. But what really happens when men dance? When Men Dance offers a progressive vision that boldly articulates double-standards in gender construction within dance and brings hidden histories to light in a globalized debate. A first of its kind, this trenchant look at the stereotypes and realities of male dancing brings together contributions from leading and rising scholars of dance from around the world to explore what happens when men dance. The dancing male body emerges in its many contexts, from the ballet, modern, and popular dance worlds to stages in Georgian and Victorian England, Weimar Germany, India and the Middle East. The men who dance and those who analyze them tell stories that will be both familiar and surprising for insiders and outsiders alike.

As performative and political acts, translation, intervention, and participation are movements that take place across, along, and between borders. Such movements traverse geographic boundaries, affect social distinctions, and challenge conceptual categorizations - while shifting and transforming lines of separation themselves. This book brings together choreographers, movement practitioners, and theorists from various fields and disciplines to reflect upon such dynamics of difference. From their individual cultural backgrounds, they ask how these movements affect related fields such as corporeality, perception, (self-)representation, and expression.

Dancing at the crossroads used to be young people's opportunity to meet and enjoy themselves on mild summer evenings in the countryside in Ireland until this practice was banned by law, the Public Dance Halls Act in 1935. Now a key metaphor in Irish cultural and political life, "dancing at the crossroads" also crystallizes the argument of this book: Irish dance, from Riverdance (the commercial show) and competitive dancing to dance theatre, conveys that Ireland is to be found in a crossroads situation with a firm base in a distinctly Irish tradition which is also becoming a prominent part of European modernity.

The broader Mediterranean area, which includes twenty five nations today, was the witness of the development of some of the most important and magnificent civilisations of the past. The Mediterranean Sea facilitated to a great extent this development through cross-cultural exchanges, which were mobilized by various modes of thought and action. This multi-authored volume of 20 essays comprises an up-to-date authorization account of many aspects of international politics, foreign relations, religious and cultural interactions in the Southeastern Mediterranean region during the second and first millennium BC. Subjects discussed include Egyptian foreign policy and diplomatic relations, wars and treaties, Greco-Egyptian contacts and their semantic connotations, international trade, artistic imports and exports, linguistic and cultural interactions, mobilization of religious ideas and ideologies, geopolitics and diplomacy. Contributors include Peter Brand, Panagiotis Frantzis, Susanne Gorke, Brett Heagren, Yvan Koenig, Kenneth Kitchen, Panagiotis Kousoulis, Yvan Ladynin, Alan Lloyd, Christofilis Maggidis, Konstantinos Magliveras, Samuel Meier, Ludwig Morenz, Alexandre Nemirovky, Robert Ritner, Alessandro Roccati, Anthony Spalinger, Elizabeth Walters, Sabine Weber, Penelope Wilson and Renate Muller-Wollermann.

Rhythm is produced in "natural" as well as "cultural" ways. Natural rhythm is not controlled by man, no more than we can control the ebb and tide of the ocean, the rising and setting of the sun, the seasons of the year, or our own life cycle, heartbeat or breathing. But what man does with his body may become a cultural fact: the way we walk, work, dance, sing, make music and decorate objects. In music, rhythm is the organization of time in units. In visual arts rhythm refers to the arrangement of regularly recurring motifs. Rhythmic cycles in the music of the Islamic world are illustrated in the correspondences between the art of sound and the other arts: poetry and musical rhythms are related to geometrical patterns and calligraphy. In South Indian music, the analogies between rhythm, woven patterns and symbolic figures are striking. Weaving patterns reveal themselves as they emerge from the loom or unfold before the discerning eye, just as a listener delights in the patterns gradually perceived by the mind, and not merely received by the ear. The symbolic meanings of motifs and colors are an expression of the relation between man and the cosmos." Rhythm, A Dance in Time" explores all these aspects of rhythm: rhythm to be heard and rhythm to be seen.

In male-dominated culture it is often problematic for young males to take up theatrical dance. Despite the development of gender-specific approaches to get more boys involved, dance education appears to be a prime site of oppression. Located at the intersection of dance studies and the sociology of masculinity, this book presents discourses through which masculinities are constructed and performed in the area of dance education in Finland. The book includes a detailed investigation of male identities constructed in relation to dance, gender and sexuality as well as an analysis of masculine embodiments and performances as a political rhetoric. The author's intertextual analysis focuses on the rejection of effeminacy, or the fear of stepping 'queerly', in male dancing. Such fear, the author argues, underscores the complex question of the social legitimacy of dance art. This book will provide new understanding on discursive power and masculinities in dance education.
