With dance we can look at topics that can be difficult to talk about. Dance allows for new angles and for expressing the things that are beyond words.
Here is a little collection of things I have found fascinating and moving.
Men and Girls
How can men and girls engage with each other in positive ways in societies full of fear?
Elitism and discrimination
Personal journey of an indigenous Australian ballet dancer. The world of dance often reflects the mainstream discrimination that happens in our society – dance can be very elitist and exclusive.
Who decides what gets called dance?
Dance can also be inclusive and bring joy to all of us. We are all responsible for defining what gets called dance.
Movement as essential for the human body
Personally I think dance is about using your body for expression. It’s not about looking gorgeous, being super-flexible or having the fastest feet. I see any physical expression that captures my heart through authenticity as dance.
