Exploring the sense of touch can lead to greater embodiment, which, in turn, can lead to more efficient dancing. Touch creates a feedback system between the external world, a person's container and what happens inside that container, which is then communicated outward. Because of its informative effects on kinesthetic awareness, touch is a critical modality and should be better integrated into dance education in order to develop the more embodied dancer.
