As community dance advocates we believe in teaching and learning practices that enhance tolerance, diversity, dialogue, compassion and empowerment. Caroline Plummer (1978-2003), a student at the University of Otago, New Zealand, was a passionate advocate for community dance. This paper reflects on her life as a student in dance at the University of Otago and her legacy - the Caroline Plummer Fellowship in Community Dance. The paper outlines meanings of community dance as written about by Caroline and other scholars and notes emergent and ongoing issues.
