Updated Proposal

After careful deliberation, Christine and I decided that we will look at body image and gender among various dance groups. In researching body image, we hope to find out what society believes the ideal dancer looks like and moves like.  We also hope to discover how society views male dancers. We can then obtain a generalizable response about what is acceptable and what is not in the dance community.

We will go about this task via photo elicitation, participant observation (we will go to different dance shows and observe the audience’s reaction and listen in to side conversations), as well as short questionnaires to get a general idea of how people feel about gender and body image in the dance community. We have possible video ideas as well as photos for the elicitation portion of our project.  These videos are predominately south asian/caribbean segments.  We hope to obtain videos of other cultural dances too.
