Summary Part I, zThe Ballet Russes and Beyond,3 explores the relatively uncharted landscape of French ballet and European art dance in the early 1900s. Part II, 2Reconfiguring the Sexes,3 focuses on women, such as choreographer Bronislava Nijinkska and dancer Ida Rubinstein, as well as phenomena that invite a feminist interpretation, such as the feminization of 19th-century ballet and the invisibility of women choreographers in ballet. Part III, 2Dance in New York,3 examines the period when New York became not only the U.S. dance capital but also, by the 1960s, the dance capital of the world. Finally, Part IV, 2Staging the Past,3 deals with issues of memory, reconstruction, and historical neglect. The book includes a generous selection of photographs.
