Abstract: This article revisits ideas put forward at the beginning of an academic career and discusses the ways in which time and experience within academe has shifted my perspective. Specifically, focusing on the balance of artistic thinking with the widely perceived need to justify the arts in higher education, I explore questions regarding the interaction of teaching within liberal-arts-based dance departments, the careers of those graduates as they become professionals, and possible effects on the art itself.
