Dance Teacher as Artist Institute Course 2

For K-12 Dance Teachers Only, Dance Course 1 Prerequisite

This institute is taught by master teachers experienced in dance education at all levels from elementary through graduate school. The purpose of this institute is to positively impact artistic literacy in the dance classroom. The emphasis of the institute is to investigate which core principles and processes drive each artistic process in dance and to experience how to effectively channel them into professional practice. The 2017 South Carolina College- and Career-Ready Standards for Visual and Performing Arts Proficiency for Dance and strategies for their implementation in dance will be a basis of the work. Participants in this institute will become more fluent in each of the artistic dance processes and learn specific approaches to expand artistic literacy. Inquiry-based methods and materials will be provided to each participant for use during the institute and becomes the property of the participant’s school upon completion of the institute.
