Ann Biddle and Felice Santorelli

DELving into Embodied Dance History is a six-module/week asynchronous course designed for dance educators who want to re-imagine early American modern dance history through the lens of embodied and inquiry-based learning.

Course content is derived from the DEL at Jacob’s Pillow DELving into Dance History series, created by Ann Biddle and Felice Santorelli, which investigates dance artists through multiple contextual lenses in order to gain a holistic and more inclusive understanding of dance history. Participants will engage in collaborative research, gain access to multi-modal course resources and primary sources, and interact with the rich content on the Jacob’s Pillow interactive site.

This virtual interactive course is a result of a collaboration between the Dance Education Laboratory of the 92NY Harkness Dance Center and Jacob’s Pillow.

Please note: This course is offered asynchronously through DEL’s online learning management system. Access to the course opens to participants at 8 am ET. Students taking the course for SUNY ESU  credit are expected to complete assignments on a weekly basis. Audit students may access course materials at their leisure and are not expected to complete course assignments.

Course scholarships and discounts are available! Learn more about scholarship opportunities here. 

Must register by Wednesday, October 9, 2024.
