Patterns of Memory: Capturing the Dance. Scholar/Artist Lecture, 2002.
This paper by the National Dance Association's 2002 Scholar/Artist presents his perspective on traditional modes of performance, choreography, and preservation, touching on emerging technological trends through movement inscription. It focuses on: his introduction to formal training; his classical ballet mentor, Bill Christensen; his lack of knowledge about modern dance throughout his education; his scholarship to the American School of Dance in Hollywood, California, which shaped his dance perspective; his teaching and involvement in the dance world at the University of California Irvine (UCI); his work to shape UCI's dance program; development of a movement notation system; establishment of an appropriate dance collection in UCI's library; his work toward computer literacy and integration of technology into the arts at UCI; and development of the ArtsBridge program, which advocates the arts as a vital tool for teaching literacy, history, science, and mathematics in the school system.
