The body is increasingly the focus of social science research, yet scant attention has been given to how bodies move, how habits of movement are acquired and what that may tell us about race, gender, and sexuality. Craig's forthcoming book places ethnographic observation and interviews into a larger social history of how recreational dance became associated with women rather than men, youth culture rather than adult life, queer but not straight men, and racial minorities rather than whites. By examining a practice that masculinity seems to exclude, Sorry I Don't Dance examines men living or solving the mind/body problem as dancers, reluctant dancers, or sitters-out.
