In this extended essay interview with Sondra Fraleigh I ask about her paving-theway research in dance and phenomenology, and how the traditions of phenomenology historically and theoretically intersect within dance research paradigms. Together we cover questions and areas such as how and when phenomenological traditions started to integrate into Dance Studies, phenomenological approaches relative to somatics, and the ethical ramifications for students when phenomenology is taught and becomes a central research paradigm for dance studies students. Sondra shares her academic experience within these intersecting fields, and personal journeys and reflections within the intricacies and intimacies of phenomenological traditions.
