The possibilities for the application of ethnochoreological knowledge are considered in the article on the basis of the author's own experience in researching dance on the island of Krk, and the reception of the published results. One paradigmatic example is the reconstruction of the tanac dance that is shown, in a picturesque way, as a link between direct scholarly research and practical activity in the field. Assessment of the stage performances is a quite different and much more sensitive experience, since what is in question relates to a decision on the representativeness of the tradition and the persons presenting it. What stems from that are also the inevitable changes in aesthetics, depending on the context of the performance and its performers. The training method also shows itself to be one of the ways of preserving the stylistic and structural particularities of the dance. The writer attempts by reflexivity to encompass and interpret the multi-layered and diverse discourses. The researcher is equally accountable whether assessment of a performance or writing text is involved. Thus, he interprets scholarly and theoretical discussions in combination with diverse fields and research contexts and the reception of the published texts as part of their practical application and vice versa.
