Here are the dance-related essays I’ve found in my (brief and partially unsuccessful) journey through UK’s libary and Google Scholar.
Most of my source were dance-related, because as Ashley said in class: I need to know more about dance and what its rhetorical political significance is.
Same as above.
This article starts to get into notions of counter-culture and rebellion, which is where I see the dance aspect in professional sports going.
Another article about dance, but this one focuses on dance as an expression of masculinity and individuality.
Honestly, this is one article I’m not sure if I’ll use. On the one hand I’m interested in dance as a political expression, but this one might be too focused for my use.
Dance and resistance again intertwined.
These last two source are the real meat of my essay— focusing on dance in sports and assessing its impact as an act of rhetorical resistance and assertion of individuality.
Again, looking at dance as rebellion and individual expression.
