In the twenty-first century, values of competition underpin the free-market economy and aspirations of individual achievement shape the broader social world. Consequently, ideas of winning and losing, success and failure, judgment and worth, influence the dance that we see and do. Across stage, studio, street, and screen, economies of competition impact bodily aesthetics, choreographic strategies, and danced meanings. In formalized competitions, dancers are judged according to industry standards to accumulate social capital and financial gain. Within the capitalist economy, dancing bodies compete to win positions in prestigious companies, while choreographers hustle to secure funding and attract audiences. On the social dance floor, dancers participate in dance-offs that often include unspoken, but nevertheless complex, rules of bodily engagement. And the media attraction to the drama and spectacle of competition regularly plays out in reality television shows, film documentaries, and Hollywood cinema. Drawing upon a diverse collection of dances across history and geography, <em>The Oxford Handbook of Dance and Competition</em> asks how competition affects the presentation and experience of dance and, in response, how dancing bodies negotiate, critique, and resist the aesthetic and social structures of the competition paradigm.

<DIV><B>“A well-researched, intimate portrait of burlesque and the women who teased and seduced their ways into the hearts of the American public” (<B>Nancy Powell, <I>Shelf Awareness</I>).</B></B><BR />  <BR /> Burlesque was one of America’s most popular forms of live entertainment in the first half of the twentieth century. Gaudy, bawdy, and spectacular, the shows entertained thousands of paying customers every night of the week. And yet the legacy of burlesque is often vilified, misunderstood, and left out of the history books.<BR />  <BR /><I>Behind the Burly Q</I> is a painstakingly researched love letter to the women and men who once made up the community of burlesque. Its dish on backstage rivalries and treasure trove of vintage photographs is enough to make historians and fans of classic erotica swoon. The personal and surprising stories of the women and men who lived it—through their own salty reminiscences—reveal the true story of the golden age of burlesque, even as it experiences a new renaissance.<BR />  <BR /> “This rich history, rife with vibrant quotes and first-hand insights from burlesque’s biggest dancers, is indispensable for fans of the ribald pastime.” —<I>Publishers Weekly</I><BR />  <BR /> “An affectionate and historically valuable document of an intriguing, little-served corner of American entertainment.” —<I>Kirkus Reviews</I><BR />  <BR /> “Utterly entertaining . . . Insightful . . . Fascinating.” —Ernest Hardy,<B></B><I>The Village Voice</I><BR />  <BR /> “Charming . . . The present-day interviews with these women are a delight and also poignant, partly because of the contrast between their older and younger selves, though mostly because of the lives they lived.” —Manohla Dargis, <I>The New York Times</I><BR />  </DIV>

<b> Janey's never felt this way before, but passengers are off limits. It's only one dirty dance...</b><br /><br /><span>Legend says everyone who boards the Oceanic Aphrodite finds love. Janey's on the ship to teach pole fitness, not for romance. Then she meets Frank. He's everything Janey isn't-refined, classy, rich-but his good looks and charm make him undeniably appealing. Unfortunately, he's also a passenger.</span><br /><br /><span>When Janey's partner can't perform in the end-of-cruise talent show, Frank offers to fill in. He's never done pole, but she's got time to teach him. As they grow closer, Janey finds herself hoping the legend is real-but if she gives in to temptation, she could be out of a job.</span>

Rising ballet star Dena Lindgren's dream career is knocked off its axis when a puzzling onstage fall results in a crushing diagnosis: a brain tumor. Complications from the extraction surgery kick off a long and difficult recovery, prompting the company’s artistic director, Anders Gunst, to shift his attention to an overshadowed company dancer -- Dena's older sister, Rebecca, with whom Anders once shared a special relationship.<br /><br />Under the heady glow of Anders’ attention, Rebecca thrives, even as her sister languishes. While Dena’s strength returns, residual facial paralysis sidelines her indefinitely, amid a world that demands beauty and perfection. Rebecca soon faces a painful choice: play by the artistic director’s rules and profit, or take shocking action to help her sister. <br /><br />Exposing the glamorous onstage world of professional ballet, as well as its shadowed wings and dark underbelly, OUTSIDE THE LIMELIGHT examines loyalty, beauty, artistic passion, and asks what might be worth losing in order to help the ones you love.<br />

American dancer, singer and actress Gwen Verdon (1925–2000) won four Tony awards for her work on Broadway and also appeared in films and on television. Stricken with rickets as a child, Verdon overcame severe leg deformity through ballet training, making her film debut at 11 as a solo ballerina in the musical <I>The King Steps Out</I> (1936). Her theater credits include <I>Can-Can</I> (1953–1955), <I>Damn Yankees</I> (1955–1956), <I>Redhead</I> (1959–1960), <I>New Girl in Town</I> (1957–1958), <I>Sweet Charity</I> (1966–1967) and <I>Chicago</I> (1975–1977). When not dancing on stage or screen, she coached other actors, such as Jane Russell, Lana Turner, Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe and Shirley MacLaine. This first full-length biography of Verdon covers her life and career, her individual performances and her collaborations with choreographers Jack Cole and Bob Fosse, her husband.
