Educational methods are influenced by two opposite conceptions of learning: the application of standards and codes, and the incentive to explore and discover things one’s own way. The former method is based on the observation that there is basically one human anatomical – including brain – organization with a few variations; the latter relies on the idea that all humans are different and capable of learning everything. Between these two approaches, we propose a contemporary dance framework that promotes a personal but constrained exploration through movement improvisation, and takes into account one’s own resources and limitations. We suggest that using this framework may develop both motor and cognitive flexibility, and promote self-esteem and social integration for all.
