DEL Dance & Civics
In this experiential movement-based workshop, participants will examine the intersection between content, artistry, and pedagogy from the perspective of the DEL model of dance education and explore instructional practices that support civic engagement and social justice awareness in the dance classroom through collaborative dance making practices.
This workshop will focus on addressing the civic engagement gap in the dance classroom through exploring inclusive, empathetic, and collaborative learning practices that support the development of participatory democracy, consensus building, and equity of voice.
Some of the guiding questions we will examine in this course are: What does civics engagement look like in the dance classroom? How can we build authentic democratic processes into dance learning? How can we engage students in democratic discourse in creative, multivarious and differentiated ways?
The design of this workshop has been informed by multiple scholars in the field of educational leadership, including Meira Levinson (2012), Kirshner & Jefferson (2015), Charles Haynes (2009) and Nyama McCarthy-Brown (2017). In addition, this integrated dance and social studies workshop is informed by the NYC Blueprint for Learning in Dance, New York State standards, and the Massachusetts social studies standards in civics, and draws links to NCCAS dance standards in choreographic processes and interdisciplinary connections.
