Abstract and Keywords
This introduction speaks of the encompassing approach this handbook takes to the topic of improvisation in dance. Following an overview of published writings, I discuss the nature and potentialities of improvised practices in dance, with a focus on the question: ‘What if improvisation?’,. The introduction ends with a short discussion of the difficulties of writing about improvisation, before presenting the handbook authors and the topics readers will find in the pages that follow.
