Developing a search vocabulary can be a real challenge! With many forms of dance there are not necessarily standard terms, or even standardized spellings. Arriving at searchable terms is particularly difficult when a term or phrase for a dance derives from a foreign language, which can be transliterated in many different ways. Taking some soundings with some initial searches can help to develop ideas about terminology.
Example topic: korean sword dance
International Encyclopedia of Dance: korea sword dance --> yielded same term spelled differently: kommu ; other sources added kom - mu or sometimes just Kom or kom. (IED's article on Korea did not mention sword dance; the Lee Mae-bang article did.)
A library catalog search for geommu OR "geom mu" OR kommu OR "kom mu" yields two books with suitable chapters.
A similar search in FrogScholar, using various Content Type Selections, yields much more.
