KET's 10-part instructional series DanceSense explores the how, what, and why of dance, traveling across cultures, ethnic groups, and time to illuminate its elements and styles. Throughout the programs, students will meet, observe, and learn from choreographers, tappers, ballet dancers, modern dancers, folk dancers, jazz dancers, and young dancers just starting out. They'll hear from those who teach or write about dance or accompany it on their instruments. And in the end, they'll understand a little more about dance as communication, dance as art ... and dance as a celebration of life itself.
An enhanced DVD version of DanceSense, including bonus video footage, is included in the Dance Arts Toolkit. The original series is also available to Kentucky schools via broadcast on KET3 and on videotape.
