How Can We Know the dancer from the Dance?

In which I settle once and for all Yeats‘s question, using the power of 5 years of PhD study in Dance Studies, Folklore, Ethnomusicology, African and African American Studies, and Comparative Cultural Analysis.*

So, how can we know the dancer from the dance?

  1. Have another dancer do the dance.
  2. Have the dancer do another dance.
  3. Ask the f*ing dancer.

*or really, just the principles of isolating variables and valuing people’s experiences
