Abstract: Choreographing History, a collection of essays edited and introduced by Susan Leigh Foster, explores the pitfalls and possibilities inherent in writing about the body and its cultural emanations. Since its publication in 1995, I have used essays from the book to help dance graduate students push their thinking beyond the studio and their own physical experience and to realize the varied resources, approaches, and theoretical positions possible in writing about the body. The collection contains some excellent movement description and also theoretical language so dense as to obscure any communication of ideas.
