A Case Study of a Greek Australian Traditional Dancer: Embodying Identity through Musicking
Georgoulas, Renee; Southcott, Jane
Victorian Journal of Music Education, n1 p9-17 2015
This article is a study of a bilingual and bicultural Pontian Greek Australian dancer. His musicking involves performing and teaching dancing. Dancing has been and continues to be a major part of the self-identity of the participant. This phenomenological single case study used interpretative phenomenological analysis to analyse the data collected by interview. The findings are presented thematically and address the formation of identity and its enactment via performing and teaching. Many people carry multiple identities and an understanding of one may inform the provision of opportunities for learning and teaching.
