This study takes an autoethnographic approach through investigating my development into dance from a gymnast’s perspective, as well as depicting whether any tendencies taught through gymnastics are still present and influential within my dancing. The purpose of this study is to gain a greater understanding of my individual moving identity, as well as gaining an understanding on how to control and direct the thought processes related to gymnastics and dance. This study draws on my personal memories from experiences within gymnastics and dance, represented through narrative of self and poetic representation. Through this reflective process I was able to draw upon specific trends from gymnastics found within my moving identity. This research suggests that idea of de-stratification and whether it could be employed to overlook some tendencies found within an individual’s moving identity.
