In “Sense of Motion, Senses of Self: Becoming a Dancer”, Caroline Potter (ethnos, vol. 73:4, dec. 2008 (pp. 444–465) argues that “developing a heightened sense of kinaesthesia (felt bodily movement) is a means of becoming socialized into the professional dance community.”
This argument suggests that it is not enough for anthropologists to study “the Euro-American ‘classic five’ senses of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch”. What I believe she is saying is that the dancers body is being “educated” to respond to culturally trained ways of being. I guess that ballet dancers would especially fit this argument since they undergo training in highly specific methodologies. However, to what extent do any of my readers think that dancers in professional ballet companies have to negotiate potential conflict between their previously learned training and that they experience in the company’s ongoing classes.
