Guided by the premise that dance is a barometer of society, Brenda Dixon Gottschild gauges the pulse of contemporary American performance: using dance as the focus and race as the parameter, she reveals Africanisms in modern and postmodern dance and in American ballet.

As a dance writer and scholar, Gottschild draws from history, image and performance to examine the presence and impact of black dance in America.
