How does dancer acquire Body Technique in dance practice? This paper aims to give answer to this question through consideration from the intercorporeality between a teacher and students in a modern dance practice. In a modern dance practice, intercorporeality appears as the process of bodily “matching” and “synchrony”.
Cosideration from bodily matching, when students are moving together, each students is not matching with others. Rather, each students are matching with a teacher. This bodily matching construct the place of cooperativity.
In the point of view of bodily synchrony, a teacher percept each students
movement,and instruct to prompt to their movement.This direction did not act merely operation of body, but the images of movement in potential layer. A teacher organize the potential layer of movement through the direction, students are entrained by direction and generated movement.
Through these experiences of bodily matching and synchrony, they try to explain these experience linguistically and to project the images of movement in situation. When they accomplish them trying, they acquire this bodily technique.
