Why I Dance…

There’s a video I love called why I dance. It was made by the Ontario Arts Council to promote dance in their community, and it is a beautiful exploration of what it means to be a dancer. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend watching it.

 

Lately I’ve been wondering about the reasons people dance – about the reasons I dance. And I’ve been thinking that this is a great theme to explore with my students. I’m going to show my extension dancers this video this week and see what their responses are. Who knows, maybe we’ll even make our own version!

I’ll let you know how it goes.

  1. Wow, what an inspirational video – I love it! I’d love to know your students’ responses to it [and yours as well]. I think I’ll have to blog my own response soon 🙂

    • It’s great isn’t it? My response is coming soon, and my students are keen to put their responses together – once we get passed the madness of production at school.
