What Is Dance?


David Thurmond, dance educator and former dancer with the Louisville Ballet, defines dance, introduces the elements of dance, and offers suggestions on how performance video can be used for student exploration of dance. Excerpts from dance performances included on the Dance Performances video are shown to illustrate his comments.

Suggested Uses:
