The First Dance

November 30, 2009 Leave a comment

The first dance performance that I ever saw (from a dance company) was at Wesleyan University my sophomore year. The dance was titled Another Evening: I Bow Down and was performed by the Bill T Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. I bring this up because this dance made me realize the potential of dance as an art form. Prior to Wesleyan I had very little exposure to dance besides social dance in my community, so to see such a performance made me curious about this craft.

The dance is also stimulating on a sensory level if anything. The music, lighting, movement, and sold out audience created a great welcoming to the dance field.

Oh dance…
