Description: As we dance through our lives, our impact on others is our expressive flair, following in the ethical steps that God’s law has written for us.
The activity of ballet as a formal art requires a specific individual to enact or carry out the written steps of choreography in a way that respects, holds true, and expresses the intent of the composer. At the same time, the true artistry of dance only comes into being in the act of the individual’s form and physical activity. In this series I explored the relationship of a dancer to her choreographed step as a metaphor for everyman’s responsibility to complete steps in the world that are choreographed and yet become beautiful through the individual flair in the particular, time and space bound performance in the world.
