PhD Research

The research examines the role of dancers who extend beyond the paradigm of age and their contribution to current dialogues in the field of dance.
Today’s focus on a youth-oriented consumer culture also weighs heavily in the current dance world and for those who are approaching forty years of age, there has been long held prejudice towards the mature performer. For generations dance has been a discriminatory industry but a flux is challenging the presumed domain of the youthful dancer. Current research indicates there is increasing interest in this phenomenon – the mature dancer. The research investigates ageism and longevity of performance in today’s contemporary ballet culture and seeks to explore perceived taboos in and around the question of retirement.
