does dance education contribute to society?
arts are part of our humanity. They are inseparable from who we
a part of life and life is a part of art. One day I was rummaging
through an old bookstore looking for books on the Ballet Russe de
Monte Carlo and I came across a book on aesthetics. It was R.G.
Collingwood's Principles of Art. The book talks about the
role of the artist on a collective level, not just a personal level.
Collingwood says that an artist is the conscience of a society.
Artwork is held up as a mirror for us to observe who we are."
