Dance as Visual Text: Teaching Students to Read.
Phillips, Rebecca Wright
Interdisciplinary Humanities, v12 n1 p11-16 Win 1995
Proposes that dance is a language with its own symbols, gestures, and aesthetics with the power to communicate complex ideas and thoughts. Outlines how discussion, analysis, and criticism can be crafted from three major elements of dance: (1) space; (2) time; and (3) energy. Asserts that students can learn to read dance as a visual text. (CFR)
