Abstract: Since I began my involvement with the Making a Difference in Dance project, I have done a lot of thinking about ethics and politics. In the past month or so, I have been doing even more thinking about it, ever since the results of my country’s presidential election were announced, revealing that the unexpected #1 issue for voters polled as they were exiting from voting was “moral values.” Just as voters connect their moral values with their political choices, I don’t think we can separate our thinking about ethics and politics in dance from our thinking about it in other parts of our lives. This brings up inevitable conflicts when our moral values differ from those of our colleagues and students.
