The Great Dance: How the Cosmos Sings and Moves by Love

Jesus upholds the universe by the Word of His power and the center of the cosmos is Love that binds everything together in perfect harmony. The idea of music and dance as formative images appears in the writing of Augustine, Boethius, Dante, Lewis and Charles Williams. Formal dance requires the learning of steps, mutual submission to a partner, being part of something larger than oneself, and seeing providence at work. Through literature, music, and film, we will examine this motif of music and dance and how it makes a difference in our understanding of the arts, performance, education, and relationships.
