  • Your responses...

  • Kyoko F. - Based on the definition in the Encyclopædia Britannica, choreography is art. However, art is very subjective. Thus I would not say that every choreography I have seen in my life is art.
  • Septime W. - Any time the human body moves in service of communication there is choreography happening. It may not be "high art" as we know it, but there is (almost) always something ennobling about communicating with our bodies.
  • J C. - Of course !!!!
