The Transdisciplinarity of Dance

BY SYED FAIZAAN AHAB
@ VOL 5 ON APR 29, 2018

A lot of times people associate dance with entertainment, others use it as a medium of expression. Some dance for fitness and for others, it is a profession. Faizaan Ahab decided to upgrade the significance of what it meant to him and experimented with it as an "Instrument of Learning". The presentation talks about the marriage of academic principles with dance to enhance experiential learning. Faizaan talks about three academic disciplines, mathematics, psychology and design mapping, all three using dance as a learning aid, hence making it transdiciplinary in nature.
