Stigma and Perseverance in the Lives of Boys Who Dance
An Empirical Study of Male Identities in Western Theatrical Dance TrainingeBook - 2009
This study investigates the competitive world of pre-professional Western concert dance training and education in the U.S. as experienced and lived by boys and young men, an under-represented population in the field. This work examines the discourses of professional dance preparation through theoretical and narrative approaches that combine to illuminate the highly gendered professional dance world as evidenced through the minds and bodies of male adolescents and young adults.
