Our project involves specifically the Indian dance community. Being that we are familiar with several dance teams, we will inform them of our study.  Given their permission, we will record pictures and videos of them in action. We will ask them if it is possible to republish their work for class purposes and research purposes as well.  By research purposes, we mean that we will ask them if we can use their photos or film to stimulate conversations and information among participants in our study. We are still considering whether we will use surveys to obtain information, but if we do, they will be strictly anonymous and we will add disclaimers to the survey informing them of our research purposes.  At the dance shows we will be attending, we hope to ask some of the audience about their personal opinion on what they feel the ideal dancer looks like. We will then ask permission to publish their opinion in our report.

    I think you could get a recording of the participants, before they start dancing, of them speaking in to the camera and giving verbal permission. Just one way of asking the participants for permission, overall its a good start!

    Hey Kanwal, that is a perfect suggestion. We did not really consider that option. I think we will go with that approach of obtaining verbal permission on video. Thank you so much!
