FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A West Virginia University at Parkersburg adjunct instructor has published three articles in a recent issue of "Dancer Magazine."
Joy Held, a dance instructor in the college's Health, Physical Education and Recreation department, is a regular contributor to the magazine.
In the column called “Great Moves!” Held’s article discusses the pros and cons of helping young choreographers to master the craft of making dance. She encourages dance instructors to support budding dance makers with regular opportunities to create dances and to provide reasonable guidelines.
“Notable Feet” is Held’s monthly column where dancers of all disciplines are featured. January’s noteworthy dance persona is the German philosopher Rudolf Steiner who created a unique movement form known as Eurythmy. Steiner was a very progressive 19th century philosopher who contributed something to a variety of disciplines, explained Held. In her article, Held describes the dance and exercise method Steiner invented for the students at his Waldorf schools in Germany and how it is still practiced worldwide.
In addition to the two articles, Held is responsible for the magazine’s monthly calendar of history, birthdays, and performances nationwide called “A Dancer’s Calendar.” The January issue of the magazine is available in the WVU Parkersburg library.
Held also has a review on the teenreads.com web site for the book "Chain Mail: Addicted to You" by Hiroshi Ishizaki.
