Culturally Responsive Pedagogy in Dance Education
Time: Asynchronous via DEL’s LearnDash
Location: Asynchronous Online
Dr. Nyama McCarthy-Brown and Ann Biddle, MA
In this six-module asynchronous course spanning three weeks, participants delve into the key components of cultivating culturally responsive pedagogy in dance education drawing from key video resources created especially for DEL by Dr. Nyama McCarthy-Brown.
The course is built around Dr. McCarthy-Brown’s curated videos and additional resources designed to guide dance educators through a process of self-examination and teacher reflection; as well as provide culturally responsive teaching tools. Participants will examine how culture, identity, and race show up in their teaching practice and will be asked to reflect on how race and other marginalizing stereotypes operate in their learning environments. In addition, participants will be given building blocks of culturally responsive teaching strategies to de-center Whiteness in the dance classroom.
