In this volume the author examines the place of dance in contemporary Britain. By doing so, he sets out to provide the historical, political and structural elements necessary to achieve a broad understanding of dance in society. He poses the question as to whether Britain has its own dance culture, examines the place of dance outside the theatrical environment (in schools, for example), and looks at the place of dance in the community.
