The composite body: hip-hop aerobics and the multicultural nation


Journal of Sport and Social Issues 21(2): 120-133
The composite body: hip-hop aerobics and the multicultural nation
This article is based on the author's experience taking a hip-hop aerobics class at an Irvine, California, fitness centre. The largely White and Asian American class of aerobicizers' incorporation of movement and bodily ideals drawn from what is taken as an African American cultural practice complicates certain views of race, nation, multiculturalism, and society.
