Critical Postcolonial Dance Pedagogy: The Relevance of West African Dance Education in the United States
Cruz Banks, Ojeya
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v41 n1 p18-34 Mar 2010
This dance ethnography examines work conducted by the Dambe Project--a nonprofit organization that specializes in African performing arts education and mentorship. The study focuses on the implications of the organization's dance pedagogy in light of its postcolonial context and the importance of West African dance education in the United States. The study strives to be a conversation between the fields of anthropology and education, dance studies and postcolonial studies. (Contains 4 notes.)
