Dance and Intercultural Dialogue

Intercultural Pedagogy

Hu, Vanessa B. (19 March 2023). Let’s Dance Together! Bridging Cultural Siloes on Campus. The Harvard Crimson.

Honestly, dance — and any cultural form of expression — is a great middle-ground to start dialogue.

Vanessa Hu likes to dance, but when she joined Candela, Harvard’s Latin social dance group, and simultaneously chose not to join the Asian-American Dance Troupe, she got a lot of comments. That made her notice “the unspoken cultural borders divvying up campus organizations.” This essay would be a good example to use in an intercultural communication course to spark discussion.
