This blog is suffering an identity crisis. Largely, because it is different from most other blogs that either seek to disseminate information, or at least engage in dialogue with a like minded group of people. For want of a better label, I am calling it a research blog. It is a work in progress.
How might I classify this work? It is not strictly academic because I want it to engage with dancers. But then it is also not like any other dance blog I have seen – because I want to engage with academics. This presents something of a dilemma when writing posts. How do I make the content interesting and welcoming to all of my readers?
For the academic: I hope to be writing soon about a theoretical approach to the research. But this is a work in progress also.
For the dancer: I would like to start discussions that talk about classes, rehearsals and performance and about how these activities influence their everyday lives – how are they meaningful?
Feel free to comment on this post if you have any ideas about making this blog a collaborative undertaking.
