“Not unlike contemporary dance itself, Contemporary Dance in Cuba  is a “ hearty, subversive hybrid”  (152) that challenges academic conventions as it furthers understandings of Cuban dance and the global history of contemporary dance. While providing an insider’ s look into Cuban movement, John demonstrates that understanding the history of twentieth century theatrical dance demands looking beyond the U.S. and Europe.”
