Re-imagine Early American Modern Dance History with DEL
We’re excitedly gearing up for our upcoming course!
DELving into Embodied Dance History is designed for dance educators who want to re-imagine early American modern dance history through the lens of embodied and inquiry-based learning.
To give you a sneak peek into what the course content feels like, we’re sharing a clip the DELving course introduction created by Ann Biddle, Director of the DEL Institute.
“In this course, you will get to engage in collaborative and embodied research, gain access to multimodal course resources and primary sources, interact with the rich content on the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Interactive site and other digital resources, and apply new learning and dance history to your unique teaching context.”
The course content for DELving into Embodied Dance History contains many audio recordings like this to guide you through the rich material, which includes access to the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Interactive site, primary sources, and many other resources.
This six module, asynchronous course is a special opportunity to engage in collaborative and embodied research while investigating the work of some of the most prolific early American modern dance artists in history, including Ted Shawn, Ruth St. Denis, Edna Guy, Hemsley Winfield, Michio Ito, Doris Humphrey, José Limón, Martha Graham, Yuriko, Pearl Primus, and more.
