Dance Education for Children and Youth: Our Future as a Field
Children (infant-adolescent) and youth (adolescent-18 years) are the future of dance education. If we look to the teaching and learning of dance for children and youth in PK-12 schools, private studios, dance organizations, and communities, we can gain insight into future dance education trajectories, such as what the needs for higher education might be and possible directions for professional dance. While this Special Issue is not specifically about the global COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on dance education, the pandemic has undoubtedly shaped research, scholarship, teaching, and learning in dance education, and therefore, manuscripts that reference the pandemic are welcome.

Deadline to Submit is November 1, 2021

Dance Education in Practice (DEiP)
Call for Papers - Special Issue: Virtual Dance Education
March 2020 saw a dramatic pivot for most dance programs to online delivery of classes and choreographic experiences in response to widespread stay-at-home orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This experience required educators to be inventive in navigating ways to meet the challenges of virtual dance education. Many of these strategies will be with us well past the pandemic and may become part of the landscape of our field for the foreseeable future. Dance Education in Practice (DEiP) seeks articles about your experiences with developing choreography, teaching technique classes and methods classes with a studio component, holding rehearsals, auditioning dancers, and creating performances online.

Deadline to Submit is May 1, 2021
