Dancing in the Streets: A History of Collective Joy

By

Dancing in the Streets is a compilation of essays celebrating the collective joy demonstrated through ritual dancing. Throughout history, dance and music have been essential components of human rituals, both religious and not. This practice has been done across the centuries and around the globe. Ehrenreich delivers a rich blend of well-argued discussions highlighting the history of this phenomenon and the specific practices of varying cultures. She has a creative and original style, which is demonstrated in each of the book’s chapters. These essays are all well researched, and an extensive bibliography and notes section appears at the end of the text. So get out your dancing shoes; be ready to let your mind explore new possibilities, and your heart soar higher than ever before.
