The More You Know, the Better You Can Imagine

The Creative Habit is…perfect for people who believe—or may come to believe after reading this book—that creativity is the result of rigor, diligence, and a defined everyday process,” writes Lincoln Center Institute teaching artist Lynn Marie Ruse in her review of choreographer Twyla Tharp’s 2006 “practical guide” to creativity. Ruse’s review for LCI’s Resource Center Blog is a passionate call for teachers and teaching artists to take up Tharp’s challenge—to learn and use and teach the creative habit. She aligns the ideas and practices of Tharp’s book with LCI’s approach to imaginative teaching and learning, suggesting that students immersed in the activities of a habitual creativity might “increase the flexibility” of their minds.
