This chapter will demonstrate the taxonomy in the psychomotor domain through a beginning dance experience. As the dancer moves from beginning to intermediate movement skills, the taxonomy clearly describes the increase of skill level and application to related dance experiences. The student begins learning to replicate movement; and then makes the transition to be able to explore and create movement. The taxonomy explains the development of skill as well as the development of the creative process, making dance a rich example of the psychomotor domain.
