The Dance of a Child

I'm at the National Faculty Leadership Conference for the next few days, so I'll try to jot down a few ideas.

Last night during a reception time, I happened upon a conversation between a professor of dance and a professor of engineering. (Maybe this should start: "An engineer and a dancer walk into a bar . . .") The engineer, in his good-natured desire to relate to the dance teacher, began relating a story about his own 2 year old son. "He just loves to move to the music. We've worked out a little routine to Peter and the Wolf. I think dance is so wonderful."

What do you think the reaction of the dance professor was?

Depends on the type of dance s/he was a professor of:

Modern - "Oh that's fantastic! The natural movement of children is dance at its purest form!"

Ballet - "Fool! Never allow a child to ruin our sacred art. They must be properly trained in technique, choreography..."


Am excited to hear the actual reaction.

If he was quick-witted enough, maybe he told a story of how is three-year-old makes stuff with Lincoln-Logs.
