The CWAH Annual Dance and Philosophy Lecture seeks to support continued expansion of dance as both an art practice and an embodied form of creative research that is also embedded in the humanities. This lecture serves students in Rutgers’ MFA Dance degree’s fall semester course, Dance Philosophy and Aesthetics and Creative Process: Improvisation Strategies. The lecture is open to the general public and all students and faculty who wish to engage more fully with dance as an expanded field.
