"Tomko blazes a new trail in dance scholarship by interconnecting U.S.History and dance studies.... the first to argue successfully that middle-class U.S.women promoted a new dance practice to manage industrial changes, crowded urbanliving, massive immigration, and interchange and repositioning among differentclasses." -- Choice
From salons to dance halls to settlementhouses, new dance practices at the turn of the century became a vehicle forexpressing cultural issues and negotiating matters of gender. By examining masternarratives of modern dance history, this provocative and insightful bookdemonstrates the cultural agency of Progressive-era dance practices.
