Art Intercepts is not just another dance blog.
In flirting with academia and health sciences over the past decade, part of my mission has been to connect dancers with accurate and reliable information developed by dance scientists, kinesiologists, sports and conditioning professionals, and qualitative researchers.
This section of the site is dedicated to producing and disseminating useful information for dancers, educators, and arts administrators, as well as identifying and exploring questions yet to be answered by the scientific community.
What you’ll find here:
