Embodiment of a dance technique that esteems a proud, audacious dancer correlates to an increase in the dancer's self-esteem and sense of empowerment. Flamenco offers female dancers the opportunity to act and assert themselves in ways that are otherwise unacceptable in the gendered realm of dance. This paper explores how flamenco exists as an idiom for defying normative codes of female/feminine behaviour in the studio and on stage. Embodying flamenco technique and "persona" can impact a dancer's experience of the dance and non-dance worlds.

Estivale 2000 Canadian Dance Bodies Then and Now/Les corps dansants d’hier à aujourd’hui au Canada. Toronto: Dance Collection Danse Press/es.
This paper examines the Canada Council report known as the Kirstein/Buckle Ballet Survey (1962), authored by Lincoln Kirstein of the New York City Ballet and Richard Buckle of the London Sunday Times. These two foreign experts assessed the artistic quality of Canada's three major ballet companies. The structure of public funding for Canadian dance, particularly ballet, would have irrevocably changed if a controversial report to the Canada Council had been implemented in 1962.

Cornell, Katherine. 2001. “The Dance Community Revolts: The Reaction to the Brinson Report of 1974.” Canadian Dance Studies Quarterly/Études canadiennes en danse : publication trimestrielle, (2) 1.
In 1974, the Canada Council for the Arts hired British ballet historian Peter Brinson to examine Canada’s three professional ballet schools to justify the Canada Council’s new funding of all three schools. Brinson’s findings were predictable but the reaction of the community to the report and subsequent funding was not. The community was enraged over the token $10,000 grants given to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School and L’École supérieure de la danse (the school of Les Grands Ballets Canadiens) in light of the increase to the National Ballet School’s funding from $320,000 to a staggering $600,000. The community’s strong reaction effected a shift in thinking and a change of some policies.
