Warburton, Edward C.
Research in Dance Education, v10 n2 p145-148 Jun 2009
In the past decade, much has been written about threats to boys' and girls' healthy participation in dance. This Viewpoints essay considers some of the causes and proposed remedies, which focus almost exclusively on the roles and responsibilities of dance educators and administrators. I suggest that what is missing from recent research, pedagogical applications and clinical intervention responses is the conversation between boys and girls themselves: peer-to-peer influences and interactions may be the single best way to combat harmful stereotypes, strengthen relations between male and female dancers, and build healthy dance communities.
