Dance: Floor Paths

In dance, a floor path - or pathway - is the "trail" left as the dancer travels through a space. Floor paths can be straight, curved, or a combination of the two. Choreographers try to create a variety of floor paths in order to provide visual interest or to create emotional or psychological impact. For example, a dancer moving directly toward the audience (advancing, coming closer) may have a different effect than one moving away from the audience (retreating).
