Art gives form and meaning to human ideas, beliefs, and feelings. Works of art make significant contributions to our world by transmitting ideas, forming understanding, as well as instilling values and attitudes both between individuals and generations. Dance as an art form is a significant part of our human heritage and, similar to other arts disciplines, numerous skills and understandings are fostered through its experience.  These include creating responses that give form and meaning to experience; exploring and discovering different possibilities in problem solving; imaginative thinking; recognizing connections; creative and critical thinking skills; appreciating the richness of human diversity; and physical and kinesthetic facility. Dance helps us feel our physical bodies, express our ideas, and connect to the world around us and our living history.

The arts make vivid the fact that neither words in their literal form nor numbers exhaust what we can know.  The limits of our language does not define the limits of our cognition.                                                                                                ---Elliot Eisner, The Arts and the Creation of Mind (2002)

As a dance education scholar, my research, teaching, and service often overlap to demonstrate this process, I have included publications, supported by links to websites, powerpoint presentations and videos from the research. This sampling of materials also includes syllabi supported by student work illustrating the content rigor and depth of the academic course to demonstrate my instructional methodology, curricular progressions, and expectations.
