About this title


Gestures of Genius is for all women seeking to understand the history in their own bodies, an engaging, uplifting, and accessible book about recapturing freedom of movement. Rachel Vigier, dance and social theorist, begins with a brief overview of the history of women's dance and the relationship between society and sanctions on women's movement, then focuses on the histories of famous women with an important relationship to dance (including Isadora Duncan and Zelda Fitzgerald). The last third of the book is comprised of the stories of contemporary women dancers from a variety of communities, whose stories of perseverance and dedication to the art of movement are enlightening, freeing, and joyful.

About the Author:

Includes twenty-four black and white photographs arranged as a picture essay on women's dance through the ages.
