Abstract

In this chapter, I advocate the opening of spaces in education and academia for dance. Viewing dance and education as ways to enter into dialogue with the world, I explore the potentiality of dance in education as a mode of (kin)esthetic experiencing and a modality to ethically respond to otherness. My lines of thinking shift focus from the self to being with others, from predefined knowledge to the unpredictable, from education concerned with fulfilling universal ideas of humanism to education as a space for the unique human subject becoming, for plurality and coexistence in a challenged world calling upon us to act together. A study is reviewed of my teaching and learning program Dancing with the Other, probing the theoretical framework in hands-on dance on the floor.


Keywords: studies in an institution of higher education; spiritual growth; humanity (societal properties); self; otherness; arts-based methods; dance (performing arts); aesthetic nature
