My presentation, Transmodernism in Dance, will explore my research of Dance Paradigms using the Gravesian Framework which I have outlined in this blog. I continue to find new depths and wrinkles in this area of research. Currently, I have been exploring its application in a variety of ways:
- As a conceptual framework for mapping (and teaching) the history of concert dance;
- As a tool for dance composition teaching (and practice) that elucidates the relevant principles found in artistic eras/paradigms;
- As a system of pedagogical methodologies for reaching each student with motivations and appeals appropriate to their individual value systems; and
- As an administrative guide for organizational leadership.
