Title:Dancing music: Music and movement in a sculpture class
Author(s):Thibeault, Matthew D.
Subject(s):Dalcroze Eurhythmics
music education
Abstract:This article explores four important considerations in asking, “what happens when we ‘look’ at a work of art?" from a Dalcroze eurhytmics perspective. These are: one, we construct our experiences in concert with the world; two, time is involved in important ways in shaping human experience; three, experience integrates all of the senses in ways we don’t often acknowledge; and, four, movement affords fresh and unique views of the world. The author bases the exploration of these considerations in his experience integrating movement exercises into a sculpture class. The explorations are linked to ideas and theories of Eric Bredo, John Dewey, Elliot Eisner, Nelson Goodman, Emile Jacques-Dalcroze, as well as to reflections from students in the class.
