Dancing Bahia is an edited collection that draws together the work of leading scholars, artists and dance activists from Brazil, Canada and the United States to examine the particular ways in which dance has responded to sociopolitical notions of race and community, resisting stereotypes and redefining African Diaspora and Afro-Brazilian traditions.

Using the Brazilian city of Salvador in Bahia as its focal point, this volume brings to the fore questions of citizenship, human rights and community building. The essays within are informed by both theory and practice, as well as black activism that inspires and grounds the research, teaching, and creative output of dance professionals from, or deeply connected to, Bahia.


Lucía M. Suárez is associate professor and director of Latino/a studies in the Department of World Languages and Cultures at Iowa State University.

Amélia Conrado is a professor at the Federal University of Bahia’s School of Dance.

Yvonne Daniel is professor emerita of dance and Afro-American studies at Smith College.
