"Learning to Dance"
Harvard Educational Review, v83 n1 p96-97 Spr 2013
This article describes how the author, Nicole Keller, found that her writing grew richer and more honest as her understanding of movement and her own body evolved through an Introduction to Modern Dance course. For the first time in her life as an aspiring writer, she felt connected to art, literature, and her personal history in ways that extended beyond an assignment or prompt. Through her introduction to the discipline of modern dance, her perception of herself and her world began to unfold. While learning to dance, she became a writer.
