dc.description.abstractHow is personal style influenced by technique within Contemporary dance practice? This research study explored the question through a mixed method design. The purpose of this research study was to discover the relationship between technique and personal style development, in order to reveal how dance training informs practice and performance, and which approaches may be most successful where the aim is to enhance a dancer as an individual. Throughout this study the context of the question proposed has been explored through presenting comparisons between an autoethnography, interview data and research on the topics explored. The key findings of the study highlighted the close link between teaching strategies and the effects they have on a dancer’s development; physically in practice through having awareness of essential dance techniques, and mentally with a mind-body connection ensuring a link between a dancer and their body as well as movement vocabulary. This research may usefully inform Contemporary dance students and teachersen_US
