Ruya Adly Professor Bailey DAN 105.35 March 18, 2018 Dance Series: Individual and Tradition The first habit of humans is to learn how to control our movements. A choreograph is one who creates, design dance. Formally dance was not about pushing boundaries. These were movements determined by kings and emperors. These dances were to reinforce the existent order. The 20 th century brought a revolution in dance lead by the choreographer. The idea of dance bringing on personal expression was revolutionary. In America, dance was not considered an art form. The dancer was considered only slightly more respectable than a prostitute or a stripper. Isadora Duncan introduced United States to a new idea: dance as art, as self-expression through movement. Duncan allowed herself free movement, loose-flowing clothing. This was a radical political statement during her time. Duncan saw dance as the art of liberation. Her dancing and her life became a symbol ofa new womanhood.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
