Dance Teaching Workshop: Theory and Practice
DANC 341
Spring 2011 not offered

A theoretical and practical course in teaching movement to children and adults, this course will center on dance education as a site for social relevance, justice, and action. Utilizing readings, discussion, writing, practice, and reflection, students will investigate theories of education, politics of body, and various methods for teaching through dance and movement. Dance Teaching Practicum (DANC447) must be taken concurrently. While prior dance training is not required, students should simultaneously register for a movement class. Students with an interest in dance, arts, education, or an interest in creative and bodily engagement in learning will find this course directly applicable. Students enrolling for DANC341/DANC447 must have at least one afternoon block (two-hour block between 3-6 p.m.) on M, T, W, or Th available for practicum work. Exceptions to these time blocks can only be made on an individual basis by contacting the instructor, Katja Kolcio (kkolcio@wesleyan.edu).
