This volume opens with an article on
“Movement and Dance”, by Roderyk Lange. The author points out the emic/etic divide in the various formulations of dance definitions. Further he stresses the necessity to have a broad definition of dance in scholarly work. Also, the criterion of the quality of movement, in defining dance, is emphasised. A discussion on the changes of the texture of dance follows, highlighting the processes of adaptation involved. Dance is certainly not a static object.
Jennifer Shennan, in her article, analyses in detail “A totally charming grace…” as contained in court dances from the French Baroque, and in those from the Tongan court dance repertoire. Although remote from each other in time and in space, there are certain similarities observable in both styles: they are concerned with fortifying the institution of monarchy. The dance is formal and representational in both cases. – The author is uniquely qualified: she is an active dancer of the baroque forms, and is very well versed in the sources of the era. With her involvement in researching the Oceanian dance culture, over many years, she had been in direct contact with the dancing people.
Ramazan H. Bogdani in his “Observations on the Albanian Dance Folklore”, draws on his many years of research on the Albanian dance tradition. He presents the criteria of his typology of Albanian dance, and discusses the terminology and the structural features of the dances. He also discusses the music and dance relationship, and various other features, like improvisation and personal interpretation, as implemented by particular dancers. He comments further on the aspect of participation in the dance event, and about the consequences, when dances are performed on an intimate scale, as opposed to big performances on the stage. This article conveys the great experience of the researcher, who presents here some generalising statements.
