NDEO "Teaching Dance Online" Webinar Series:

Pedagogy & Mechanics for Online Physical Dance Practice
This session was presented live by Barbara Angeline and recent BFA Dance graduates from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University: Kelly Dooley, Claudia Soga, Ariana Speight, Cara Stine, and Abby Wolski, on May 18, 2020.

Free for NDEO Members and Non-Members

How do student dance experiences and learning goals shift when they are moved to digital environments? Which additional skills do we need and which do we need to give to our students in order for us to successfully engage in remote dance education? 

Reimagine rather than replicate. This workshop will not expand philosophical debate surrounding whether or not face to face learning in studio practice is better in a studio. (Of course it is!!!) This workshop will explore the potential for what CAN be done in remote physical dance practices. Logistics without fancy software, safety considerations and ideas for online pedagogy will be explored via a participant/observer, observer/participant experience. Please wear comfortable clothes for moving. A gentle jazz class will be used as a medium for illuminating best practices in remote dance learning.
