Hey guys! In case you missed last night’s #dancechat, I’ve copied it online here. A huge thanks to those who participated, and to those who sent in feedback after the chat. Hope to hear from a few more of you next week!
Hey guys! Thanks so much for participating in tonight’s
#DanceChat. To start: What role do you play in the dance world?
Choreographer? Dancer? Viewer? etc.

I’m a handful of times viewer of dance, but I know nothing about it. But I still LIKE it! And I like to dance in bars and such 🙂
In the case of Merce, I took my friend to a performance and he felt very limited because he knew nothing of Merce’s previous work
I think I would like to share it after the piece has been seen, but I haven’t had a lot of choreographic experience yet
Some viewers prefer to attend a talk-back because after seeing a dance work, they can ask more pointed questions.
But those pieces were completely focused on the process as an art form. I think its possible for other ways to seem gimmicky
We’ve talked a lot about modern dance, but not about other dance forms. Is there room for interpretation in ballet, etc?
I also like contemporary ballet, and I also like when traditional ballets are re-interpreted by ballet companies (sometimes)
The choreographer says in the video that African Dance and Ballet can co-exist, and that restrictions are for the birds.
