Carol: Constant movement

Do you know what a choreographer is? I had the pleasure of interviewing Carol Dilley, a dancer and choreographer who divides her time between Maine (USA) and Sydney. I called this piece Carol: Constant Movement for several reasons. Firstly she is a dancer. Secondly she is always travelling and working in several countries, mainly USA, Australia and Spain. Finally she is always learning something new. Her latest project is the creation of dance videos. You can see one of them below and the rest in her youtube address.

Listen to my conversation with Carol to learn more about her and what she does. You can print the worksheet beforehand. It will hellp you with the listening.
