Dance as a way of knowing (and being)

As a dancer I strongly relate to this one. The blurb:

Be it rhythmic or shuffling, athletic or pedestrian, erotic or just social, dance is an art form that utilizes movement of the body through space. Could the aesthetic experience of being physically present and embodied in the world be considered a way of knowing? Is there something in particular we can come to know by watching or performing dance? And are there broader lessons that dance can teach us about human perception and action? John and Ken hit the floor with Alva Noƫ from UC Berkeley, author of "Strange Tools: Art and Human Nature."
