In a dance performance the audience may enter into new and strange situations in which the ordinary may take unexpected turns. Sometimes this changes our expectations, and may even lead to a change in the way we perceive the world or ourselves. To give free rein to the experience and the imagination, the audience has to approach the work with an open mind. To stimulate an open-minded view, teachers and dance makers should not explain the content of the performance in advance, because that will guide expectations in a specific direction. If we want children to have an open-minded approach to dance, we have to stimulate their curiosity.
