Abstract: This study attempts to gain understanding of how adolescent pre-professional dance students experience dance; a qualitative methodology is used. The researchers describe larger issues which emerge from the analysis, focusing primarily on how the students in the study perceive the experience of dancing, how they perceive the dance world, and how they are trying to find their place in it. Finally, the researchers reflect upon the meaning of their findings in terms of implications for the dance profession.
