Dance notation


Planning a dance

I remember reading about the various modes of dance notation, ways that dance movements could be written like music, then read back and learnt by the dancers. This circular watercolour was a response to such, except this is an imaginary language of my own devising - perhaps to be played like a record!
Dance tradition demands a rigid order, group dance demands order to prevent mayhem - but my granddaughter dances freely without order.
How beautiful it would be to dance freely like a four year old again.
