    $900.00

    This course provides a foundation of dance standards within a culturally responsive teaching framework. Centering creativity, participants deepen their understanding of the elements of dance; explore child development through a Vygoskian lens; learn about human cognition and trauma; examine myths, misperceptions, and biases found in dance teaching; and design dance curricula for their teaching setting. Luna’s Summer Institute covers the same material. All workshop levels include teacher reflection, situated learning theory, and inclusive practices.
