Living Legacy: Women’s Dances of Uzbekistan
Lecture by Dr. Laurel Victoria Gray

Dance can also reflect social and political developments, especially the evolution of folkdance to professional art dance. These changes can give insight into Uzbek women’s changing status and the development of national identity.
