McCarthy-Brown, N. (2014). Decolonizing Dance Curriculum in Higher Education: One Credit at a Time. Journal of Dance Education, 14(4), 125-129.

In this short essay, McCarthy-Brown argues that dance programs should move towards "an inclusive system that does not privilege particular dance forms." She examines the disparity between the diversity-minded mission statements of college dance departments and the restrictions they face based on credit requirements. She offers several suggestions to professors who wish to make changes to the structure of their program.
