Aesthetics and Dance.
Thomas, Carolyn E.
The nine articles in this monograph deal with aesthetics from a broad-based approach appealing to an eclectic dance audience. The papers were written by dancers, dance philosophers, and physical educators. Two papers examine the role of the body as the dancers' aesthetic medium, including the use of yoga to increase body awareness. Other papers discuss creativity, aesthetic theories related to dance, the role of beauty and truth in dance, dancing for children, the aesthetic attitude in dance, and the aesthetic experience from a performers point of view.
