Content

From its beginnings as an alternative and dissident form of dance training in the 1960s, somatics emerged at the end of the 20th century as one of the most popular and widespread regimens used to educate dancers. It is now found in dance curricula worldwide, helping to shape the look and sensibilities of both dancers and choreographers and thereby influencing much of the dance we see onstage worldwide. Examining somatics in detail and analysing how and what it teaches in the dance studio, this text considers how dancers discover and assimilate new ways of moving and also larger cultural values associated with those movements.
