Teaching Dance as Art in Education (TDAE) is known to be a strong comprehensive foundation text for higher education and in-service teachers. Now seamlessly translate this text into classroom practice. This bundle offers the highest quality conceptual-based curriculum and instruction available in educational dance. These resources deliver the 6DC model of educational dance in a three-dimensional, hands-on way for coherence in teaching and learning. These synergistic materials instill the big ideas that move “informational dance” instruction to become “educational dance.”
The kits grew out of two cornerstone chapters in Teaching Dance as Art in Education (“Creating and Composing” and “Analysis and Critique”). It is their inquiry-based resources that advance the chapters’ content in new and unforgettable ways. Users of TDAE as a text miss part of its classroom impact without the strategic catalysts in these two kits.
For dance education professors, pre-service dance educators, K-12 dance teachers, graduate students, student teachers, teaching artists, dance company education directors.
Read about each resource separately on the website for details about each item and its contents.
