‘I’ll go back next week – it’s complicated’: Returning to dance with the help of Bourdieu elke emerald, KAREN BARBOUR

Prologue I have just been to dance class. It was truly awful. I rolled about on the fl oor like a beached whale (others were rolling too, not just me you understand). I am bruised all over as my shorts have an excessive and ostentatious number of zippers. I may not be able to walk tomorrow. The rest of the class are bendy stretchy, turn themselves inside out 18 year olds. I’ll go back next week – it’s complicated.
