ABSTRACT

To emphasize the importance of criticality and reflexivity in the concept of dance literacy, this study discusses the influence of post-theories and cultural studies that have become the basis for the expansion of the concept of literacy. First, I examine the major academic discourses of cultural studies related to the concept of literacy, focusing on the constructive nature of meaning, various possibilities of reading, and the power relationship. Next, I analyze four cases of critical dance studies, which recognize dancing body as a text in the areas of dance analysis, dance anthropology, dance pedagogy, and dance history. Finally, I propose class activities and techniques that help critical and reflective understanding of dance phenomenon by applying the critical literacy class technique. By reading and writing diverse versions of a dance, students understand that the meaning of the dance is selectively constructed depending on the context.
