Dance demands a lot from the body, both physically and mentally, and dancers are very in tune with their body.
They can often tell when there is restriction in the tissues when performing dance movements. It is important for dancers to listen to their body when these restrictions are felt, because if the dancer chooses to ignore it, it could lead to compensation movement patterns, unnecessary load on other areas of the body and dysfunctional movement patterns.

As scholars like Randy Martin have noted, dance criticism tends to isolate a performance from broader influences of social, political, and economic forces. By asking this question I do not mean to diminish the important roles Halprin has played as a performer and director.

As an archival object, the catalogue makes it possible to circulate their ideas to broader communities. How did these transitions occur?
