This chapter describes the career and teaching philosophy of Dennis Nahat, Artistic Director of Ballet San Jose in California, who defines technique as the ability to transcribe the unseen—something that is out of reach, out of the norm—without words. An invisible thing and a natural thing, it comes with many years of understanding one's own body.
