How does dance education contribute to society?

“The arts are part of our humanity. They are inseparable from who we are.”

"Art is 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."
