Dance teaching Workshop (DANC341) and Practicum (DANC447)

If you enjoy dancing and would like to share your passion with others, or if you enjoy teaching and are curious as to what can be taught through movement, the Dance Teaching Workshop and Practicum offer the perfect opportunity to explore these interests while bringing weekly dance classes to the community.

Course description from WesMaps:
“A theoretical and practical course in teaching that utilizes movement and creativity, 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. Prior dance training is not required. Students with an interest in dance, arts, education, or an interest in creative and bodily engagement in learning will find this course directly applicable. Concurrent enrollment in Dance Teaching Practicum, DANC447 (.5 credit) is required.”

There are still opens spots in the Fall 2014 course, and interested students should contact Professor Katja Kolcio (kkolcio@wesleyan.edu).
