Dance & visual impairment – For an accessibility of choreographic practices, produced by Centre national de la danse and Cemaforre-European Centre for Cultural Accessibility in the frame of the THE HUMANE BODY EU project, raises questions of how our senses are used in dance teaching practice. In considering how we might develop a more inclusive teaching methodology for blind and partially sighted learners it also exposes other questions: how might traditional ocular-centric teaching models be denying the potential for everyone of a more multi-sensory approach to learning dance? What possibilities might there be for a pedagogy that embraces touch and hearing as equals with vision?
