What sort of literature would this be? Philosophical, technical (manuals,
tutorials, etc.), ethnographic and anthropological studies, reviews, or
just references to dancing in fiction?

Whatever sort of literature you are interested in, I suspect that its
development is somewhat dependent on the work in preceding times. For
example, if you were to concentrate on the theories of Dalcroze or Laban,
you'd need to look at their philosophical or pedagogical precedents.
