Why does one have to look at and beyond the movement to get at the meaning

timer Asked: Mar 14th, 2016

Question description

In her essay, Five Premises for a Culturally Sensitive Approach to Dance, dance scholar Diedre Skylar states, “Dance is a form of movement knowledge intertwined with other forms of cultural knowledge, and a corporeal experience that is conceptual, emotional, kinesthetic, and visual.” Why does she suggest that one has to look at and beyond the movement to get at the meaning of a dance? Describe a section of the dance documentary Sand (2010), by dance filmmaker Cari Ann ShimSham to explain Skylar’s premise.
