Dance and Gender -- Opening Questions
Reflecting on the dancing that you care about right now, how are notions of gender and
sexuality present in the dancing? What questions could you ask about gender and/or
sexuality with regard to the dancing you do, watch, remember, aspire to, etc.?
Take some time to brainstorm, free write, make lists, etc. Give yourself time to dig under
the surface of your first ideas, excavating the layers of your experience.
Bring in a version of your notes to hand in. (This can be a cleaned up version or a
summary if you want to keep your first draft for yourself.)
