Ross brings together many discourses -- from dance history, pedagogical theory, women's history, feminist theory, American history, and the history of the body -- in intelligent, exciting, and illuminating ways. She shows how H'Doubler, like Isadora Duncan and other modern dancers, helped to raise dance in the eyes of the middle class from its despised status as lower-class entertainment and "dangerous" social interaction to a serious enterprise.
