"Ambitious in its scope and interdisciplinary in its purview. . . . Without doubt future researchers will want to refer to Hanna's study, not simply for its rich bibliographical sources but also for suggestions as to how to proceed with their own work. "Dance, Sex, and Gender" will initiate a discussion that should propel a more methodologically informed study of dance and gender."--Randy Martin, "Journal of the History of Sexuality"
