Dances that embody the «feminine» teach the dancer and the observers inside and outside the faith tradition about women`s experiences, expressions, and understandings within their respective faith traditions. In Embodying the Feminine in the Dances of the World`s Religions, the author immerses herself in four dance traditions and explores what their dance teaches about women`s experiences in their faith tradition. Bharatanatyam is a classical Indian dance stemming from the devadasi system; kabuki onnagata are Japanese male enactors of «female-likeness»; the Mevlevi Order of America allows women to train as «whirling dervishes»; and Gurit Kadman created folk dances for Jewish women and men.
