at last, together

Karen Bond

pp. 1-20

This chapter first establishes preliminary connections between the fields of social indicators–quality of life research and dance. I then outline some of the historical, social, and cultural forces that have kept dance from being taken seriously as a "fine art," an area of education and scholarship, and a constituent of quality of life, particularly highlighting religion, sex, gender, and economics. Finally, "At Last, Together" provides background to the topic and its treatment in the volume as a whole, followed by brief introductions to each of its eight sections and 31 chapters.
