Dance Teaching Workshop

DANC 341
Fall 2024
Section: 01  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Community-Engaged Learning, Service Learning

Leap, spin, fall, and reach! Dance Teaching Workshop familiarizes students with methods and practices for teaching dance and movement to children and adults. Combining theoretical perspectives on education, dance, embodiment, and creativity together with hands-on practice teaching dance, students will gain practical skill in syllabus design and methods of teaching while developing a "teaching statement" reflecting on the role of dance/movement in education.

Prior dance training is not required; however, students should have an interest and some experience in either dance, arts, or education.

As part of this course, students will design and teach a dance class of their choice in the community (concurrent enrollment in Dance Teaching Practicum DANC447, 0.5 credit, required).
