IS ALL CHOREOGRAPHY ART?
Your Answer?...CLICK HERE
- Stacy P. - Yes! Art, n. artisan, articulate/ratio, from Latin "artus"joint, to join or to fit together, 1. human ability to make things: as distinguished from the world of nature, 2. making or doing of things that that display form, perception, hopefully love
- Kitty L. - No, I don't think every piece of choreography is art. I don't believe every dancer is an artist. I believe that "Art" can stand the test of time, where as some work can barely stand for one showing.
- Septime W. - Any time the human body moves in service of communication there is choreography happening. It may not be "high art" as we know it, but there is (almost) always something ennobling about communicating with our bodies.
