Ida Mara Freire About the author

The aim of this paper is to reflect on Dance-Education in the context of an intercultural experience, involving teachers and researchers from both Brazil and Britain. It will show the dance as area at knowledge, comparing the teaching and teachers training between these two respective countries. It will explain the relationship between creation, performance, observation and dance appreciation. It will discuss the video as a strategy for dance education teaching. It will recognise its spaces of learning as well as the possibilities of cultural exchange and the new meaning single and multiple bodies, through the contemporary dance perspective.
