: <sup>1</sup> It should be noted here that in prioritising embodied agency and indeed dancing agency, this conceptualisation of human-being is not intended to reinforce an ableist understanding of physical impairment. It is not the level of mobility or the level of skill in dance that determines the quality of the experience of agency. Rather the point is that people of all different sensory and motor abilities can use some form of movement for exploratory creative experimentation and to some extent register its impact in the physical, social and sensory world they inhabit.<sup>2</sup> Further exploration of the socio-cultural inscription of the body through the lens of Existentialist Phenomenology can be found in the work of Simone de Beauvoir (1997), Franz Fanon (2008) and Iris Marion Young (2005).
