Caliban's Dance concludes the trilogy begun with Further Education and the Twelve Dancing Princesses, and continued with The Principal: Power and Professionalism in FE. The contributors probed the question "Where in FE is there space to dance?", then "What restricts the dance?" Now we ask: "With no restrictions, what would a future FE dance be like?"

FE is subject to reductive utilitarianism by policymakers; Caliban's Dance counters with vivid dreams of a sector unfettered. The book's central metaphor is Caliban from Shakespeare's The Tempest, a play that can be read as a manifesto for second chances, transformation, and learning. The contributors re-imagine FE as utopia: if it is to be Grimm, they demand that it be so on their own professional terms - as powerful, democratic, dancers.
