Dance and Music Working Group
Chair: Nona Monahin
Even though most dancing involves music, the topic of music has, ironically, been under-explored within dance studies. Currently there are working groups on dance within societies for musicology and ethnomusicology; this working group is the SDHS counterpart.
The working group on Dance and Music serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas among members who are interested in the interaction between music and dance. The group studies dance-music relationships from the perspectives of choreographers, dancers, musicians, and audience members, primarily within the context of Western theater dance.
