This intensive course is designed for dance educators, dance/movement therapists, and dance teaching artists.
Other participants should have a background in dance and comfort expressing themselves in movement. The course will integrate concepts of development, positive behavior support, best practices in dance education and dance/movement therapy theory to teach participants how to create dance activities that engage the strengths and meet the needs of children and adolescents who have emotional, behavioral, learning, sensory and/or physical challenges. Participants will learn group and individual strategies to promote positive behavior and will be guided in applying these strategies in their own dance education or dance/movement therapy settings. Class sessions, held via Zoom, will include lecture, discussion, movement experiences, small group work, and audio-visual media. Participants will have assigned readings and those who take the course for college credit via Empire State College or alternate route dance/movement therapy training will be required to write a short, focused paper on the implementation of concepts from the course in their own practice or theoretically in dance with children or youth with a disability.
