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


, : The composite body: hip-hop aerobics and the multicultural nation. Journal of Sport and Social Issues 21(2): 120-133

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.
