Learning & Teaching I – Groundworks


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.

Limited tuition assistance available for independent dance teaching artists or educators whose administrators do not cover PD. Please contact Jochelle jperena@lunadancecreativity.org for more information.
