Abstract
Title: Dance improvisation, “…then you can’t say that anything is right or wrong, but then again maybe you can…”
The purpose of this study is to examine the goals and intentions of teaching dance improvisation. In this study, I have made four interviews using qualitative method with informants who are teaching the subject. Through literature and qualitative interviews, the study sheds light on dance improvisation as a concept and as a phenomenon. The informants give a picture of their teaching methods and of what it means to improvise in dance. They also describe what goals they want to achieve with their teaching. The results illustrate that dance improvisation includes both explicit and implicit aims. The teaching of dance improvisation... (More)

The results illustrate that dance improvisation includes both explicit and implicit aims. The teaching of dance improvisation aims at developing the dancer to a maximum in the art of dance, but its nature is also to build character and to change the personality of the dancer. The improvisation demands a special attitude not only towards dance but towards everything one meets in life. The ideal for the improviser is to become a self-actualized, creative person who in the study is described as being free. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka mål och mening med undervisning i dansimprovisation. I studien har jag genomfört fyra kvalitativa intervjuer med informanter som undervisar i ämnet.
Genom litteratur och intervjuer belyser jag dansimprovisationen som begrepp och fenomen. Informanterna ger en bild av hur deras undervisning går till, vad det innebär att improvisera samt beskriver vilka mål de vill uppnå med undervisningen. Resultaten visar att dansimprovisation innefattar både uttalade och outtalade syften. Undervisningen syftar till att utveckla dansare maximalt inom sin konstform men är även karaktärsdanande och personlighetsförändrande till sin natur. Improvisationen kräver ett speciellt förhållningssätt inte bara till dansen utan... (More)

Undervisningen syftar till att utveckla dansare maximalt inom sin konstform men är även karaktärsdanande och personlighetsförändrande till sin natur. Improvisationen kräver ett speciellt förhållningssätt inte bara till dansen utan till allt man möter i livet och idealet för improvisatören är en självförverkligande, kreativ människa som beskrivs som fri.
