Dance is participatory

When dancing in a social context, it feels vivacious, unpredictable, sweaty, joyous. Everyone on the dance floor is a part of the experience. But when viewing dance in an art or entertainment setting, it can be devoid of that back and forth interaction that cultivates joy. In Dance is Participatory, I invite the viewers, normally passive bodies, to interact with the art in order to see it as intended at full speed.

If the viewer stays still, the art slows down, the more movement, the more enjoyment for all.
