“How do professional ballet dancers accommodate shifts in motivation through a lifetime of change, success and disappointment?”
I am looking for dancers and others who are interested in helping with my research. I am also interested in hearing from academics with an interest in dance. In the “Participation” box in the right hand menu you will find links to posts that ask questions you may wish to comment on.
Another way you may participate would be to click Follow Posts via Email (top of side bar) and make comments on any of the posts.
Say anything you like! Comparisons between ballet and your other interests would be valuable. You don’t need to say anything academically engaging unless you want to; observations, criticism, agreement, comparisons and contrasts are all welcome. The idea is to get a dialogue going.
GUEST CONTRIBUTORS: If any professional dancer, artistic staff, ex-dancer, student, or academic would be willing to write a guest post and talk about what they think motivates a professional dancer during their career, please contact me. If you wish to find all guest posts to see as examples, click on “Contributions by guest posters” in the side bar
If you can display a promotional poster on an appropriate (dance company, dance media, university, etc) noticeboard or web site – please download, print, and display. Your help would be appreciated.
