Teacher’s Imprint — Rethinking Dance Legacy


2017 | XXXVII

Conversations Across The Field Of Dance Studies 2017

Guest Editor: Sanja Andus L'Hotellier

Teacher’s Imprint—Rethinking Dance Legacy pays homage to French dance scholar and critic Laurence Louppe (1938-2012) and germinated from conversations with Professor Emerita Dr. Vera Maletic (1928- 2015) from the Ohio State University. Resolutely internationalist, Maletic was a member of the third generation of Laban-trained teachers and taught extensively throughout Europe and the US. This issue of Conversations Across the Field of Dance Studies emerged from the desire we shared to bring together teachers, dancers, and scholars from different countries and mother tongues, across a wide range of dance practices, in a discussion around the notion of the teacher’s imprint. read more
