AbstractProbably the simplest, and the most complete, definition of dance is to be found in the writings of Rudolf Laban (1879-1958) who states that it is "understood as a total immersion in the flow of movement." This seems to imply that movement termed "dance" has particular characteristics that are identifiable and that one dances in order to enjoy movement sensations, which may occur at the time of moving or may be sensed during a period of reflection. When one considers the universality of movement and the integrative role it plays in our lives - the intricately interwoven network of moving and being, moving implying a state of being, being implying a state of moving, the ebbing and flowing of life, the interplay between dynamic and static states - one may begin to realize the scope of movement as an educational medium.
