Abstract and Keywords

The diverse cultures captured, recreated, and partly created anew in this book have a number of interwoven threads that run through all its parts. In each part, the art form is kept alive, and is further enhanced by the addition of online video material. These are not simply add-ons: in some cases they constitute the main contribution made with the text, simply following the dance experience. Furthermore, the inclusion of video material on the companion website enables readers to fully appreciate the extent to which this visual artform has become entrenched in diverse cultural settings worldwide, and allows flexibility for further development.

Keywords: dance and spirituality, dance and physiology, dance and social interaction, dance and emotion, dance activism
