Inner Rhythm - Dance Training for the Deaf (Paperback): Naomi Benari Inner Rhythm - Dance Training for the Deaf (Paperback)
Naomi Benari
R735 Discovery Miles 7 350 Out of stock

This is an account of a search for ways to teach dance to the profoundly deaf in a variety of schools and settings. The author describes the methods and games she devised with the children to heighten their awareness of rhythm, music and the breath inherent in every dance movement. This work shows the author's gradual realization that knowledge of music is the basis for dance teaching, and that this knowledge can also enhance the training of hearing dancers. This concept led the author to the conviction that, for the hearing as well as for the deaf, dance and music can be an alternative way of knowing, and an opportunity for children to learn to express their unarticulated feelings and thoughts, to communicate, to socialise and to explore the world in which they live. A video cassette is also available.

Prima Princessa invites budding ballerinas to explore the wonderful world of ballet
Is there any more enticing figure than the ballerina? Dressed in a fluffy tutu, wearing her pink pointe shoes, and dancing so gracefully, she's what every little girl longs to be. But what does it take to make that fantasy come true? Thanks to the charming, illustrated Prima Princessa, would-be ballerinas will enjoy a privileged peek into the dancer's world.
The fairy-like Princessa ushers readers into New York City's famous School of American Ballet (SAB) in Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts--the finest dance academy in the U.S. and the starting point for most of the New York City Ballet's ballerinas. Through stunning photography, they'll enter SAB's classrooms and get an intimate look at how elite dancers train. The visit begins in a pre-ballet class, moves to SAB's Children's Ballet Division (11-year-olds), and finally arrives at the near-professional Advanced Ballet classes (16-year-olds). Along the way, newcomers to ballet will learn about the school's dress code; see close-up images of young students demonstrating all the basic positions; and find out what goes into performing each step. Just like a real dance class, the book opens with a barre--where dancers warm up--and then shifts to the center, where ballerinas can show off their balance, perform combinations, and eventually practice partnering. (There's also a glimpse at boy's class, too ) The on-the-page performance is absolutely inspiring, with every dancer in perfect, elegant form: all the photos and instructions have been checked by the teachers at SAB for accuracy. And most exciting of all is watching a girl get ready to go on stage for a dress rehearsal, applying her makeup, straightening her costume, and making sure every hair is in place.
It's the stuff of which dreams are made, and the finest children's introduction to ballet ever published

The Body Can Speak - Essays on Creative Movement Education with Emphasis on Dance and Drama (Paperback): Annelise Mertz The Body Can Speak - Essays on Creative Movement Education with Emphasis on Dance and Drama (Paperback)
Annelise Mertz; Foreword by Joseph Roach
R592 Discovery Miles 5 920 Out of stock

Movement is our first language, our universal language. Expression of body movement is the very basis of life as the nineteen contributors to "The Body Can Speak: Essays on Creative Movement Education with Emphasis on Dance and Drama "attest. Students use their bodies as an instrument of expression, and movement as medium; this means investigating space, energy, time, and motion in order to gain insight into these basic principles. At the same time they gain essential awareness of the self. Such work stimulates the senses and intellect, and develops a tangible new vision to satisfy the human need for aesthetic and artistic expression.
As editor of this collection, accomplished dancer and artistic director Annelise Mertz provides both an aesthetic appreciation for creative movement education as well as practical pedagogy for incorporating dance and drama into contemporary curriculum. Mertz has assembled here a definitive body of work from fellow artists and former students that speaks to the need to actively promote art as part of education.
The book gives voice to accomplished teachers, actors, dancers, directors, authors, and choreographers who share their experiences while they address creative movement education from preschool through college. Forty-eight photographs add an illuminating visual dimension to this wealth of stimulating ideas. "The Body Can Speak "provides a balanced and varied mosaic, with each essay offering evidence that creative movement education is vital for human development.
Contributors include Becky Engler-Hicks, Ruth Grauert, Anna Halprin, Joanna G. Harris, Margaret N. H'Doubler, Michael Hoeye, Murray Louis, Annelise Mertz, JaimeNisenbaum, Carol North, Jeff Rehg, Shirley Ririe, G. Hoffman Soto, Emma D. Sheehy, Harold Taylor, Branislav Tomich, Dorothy M. Vislocky, and Joan J. Woodbury.
