The first of a two-part series exploring the tools and motivations behind starting a dance company. Prof. Joseph Victor Gonzales features as the first ever guest on the show and is an immensely experienced performer, choreographer and educator. Most notably, he is the founder/artistic director of ASK Dance Company, one of the very few full-time employing companies in Malaysia.
This episode also kickstarts the month of Art Management. So much of what and why we start something important is due to NECESSITY. Do we ask enough pertinent questions that need answering? Let's find out by 'Dancing the Malaysian! '
