From the venue:Imagery is one of the tools dance teachers use to promote goal attainment in classes. Depending on the level and style of dance, imagery can be used to enhance technique, choreography, creativity, and expression. Although research in dance imagery provides some insight into how imagery works and in what contexts, many aspects still remain unexplored. In this lecture, an overview of imagery within the dance world will be given, including the different definitions and sub-groups used, its clinical applications and advantages for the dancer, as well as future research directions and challenges.
