Thinking about what it means to be a dancer. . .
I want to just be plain old angry with him, but I have to admit that Alastair Macaulay has some valid points. Don’t get me wrong, I still adore Ms. Ringer and her dancing. However, I started to think about how dance is written about. Candice and I had a very interesting conversation about this last night, after attending the Career Transitions for Dancers Holiday Party. Dance is such an odd profession. I think that as dancers, we need to take more responsibility in elevating the artform to an intellectual level. I don’t entirely agree with Mr. Macaulay, but I kind of commend him for defending himself.
