A Creative Process for Dance
For some time now, we have struggled to find a honest way to bring Dance alive into our curriculum. This made for a perfect storm because I had a class of "movers" and Dance was almost a need. I guess that these types of curriculum "gap" dilemmas make for the best opportunities to dive right in - sink or swim. The upside is that if it isn't being done and hasn't been done then you have a blank canvas to work with too. Initially, my complete lack of Dance knowledge caused me to hesitate, but this gave way to my favourite thing of late - RESEARCH! Off I set with a mission to educate myself about how I would inspire, educate and enlighten my little bunch of dancers in the making. What unfolded was discovering an unbeknown interest in Dance, the best-loved-UOI of all time by students and a synthesis of some really practical resources for both students and teachers to use and learn from. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did making them. This school year, when we refine our UOI planner, I will post that too, but until then, please enjoy these resources and DARE TO DANCE too.
