What most excites you about the Dance Choreography course?

Giving teachers wholesale jerseys the tools to create WITH their students therefore giving students and opportunity to participate in the choreographic process and acknowledge for their ideas. It emphasizes the role of the teacher as facilitator/choreographer.

How long have you been teaching this course? How did you create the curriculum and what inspired it?

This course was wholesale mlb jerseys first taught four years ago and addressed a desire by teachers to learn more about the choreographic process.

This process allows for a more authentic and individual movement expression from our students.

What makes the curriculum you will teach at DEL different from courses taught elsewhere?
