A true prodigy, she was attempting in months roles that take most dancers years to master. But when Misty became caught between the control and comfort she found in the world of ballet and the harsh realities of her own life, she had to choose to embrace both her identity and her dreams, and find the courage to be one of a kind. With an insider's passion, Misty opens a window into the life of an artist who lives life center stage, from behind the scenes at her first classes to her triumphant roles in some of the world's most iconic ballets. A sensational memoir as "sensitive" and "clear-eyed" (The Washington Post) as her dancing, Life in Motion is a story of passion, identity and grace for anyone who has dared to dream of a different life.

R1,473 Discovery Miles 14 730 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

- Explains, with sample unit plans, how to teach the basics of 10 popular dance forms for K-12 settings- Explains how to apply educational theories to dance - Presents dance education in context of the national standards for dance- Helps readers build portfolios that demonstrate their ability to create lesson plans, a unit plan, and a dance curriculum

There's a lot more to dance education than steps and dances. To be successful, dance educators must practice a variety of skills that go far beyond dancing. They must incorporate educational theories to meet state and national arts standards, establish a solid knowledge base of the dance form to be taught, and set up developmentally appropriate learning experiences.

To help aspiring dance educators acquire the skills that will make them successful in the classroom, this book provides vital information on teaching methods in general, then shares specific applications for teaching each dance form.

"Dance Teaching Methods and Curriculum Design" presents a conceptual model of dance education that embraces dance as an art form and disseminates it through learning experiences in dancing, dance making, and dance appreciation. Through this book, dance educators will broaden their understanding of the dance content that is appropriate for their students and their educational setting.

Part I presents an overview of the teaching and learning process in dance, including the background information necessary to plan, organize, set up, and deliver an effective learning experience. It provides essential information about the national standards in dance and guides readers smoothly through the process of - identifying both dance content knowledge and teacher knowledge, - developing observation skills, - being aware of how students learn movement, - constructing a dance class, - choosing a presentational method, - addressing student behaviors in the classroom, - analyzing the learning environment, and- teaching for artistic development across various dance forms.

Part II offers ideas for unit and curriculum development, design, and evaluation. Readers will learn how to create learning experiences, lesson plans, unit plans, and finally a dance curriculum. They will become familiar with four categories of dance that encompass 10 dance forms; they also will discover the application of movement, choreographic, and aesthetic principles to these dance forms. Readers will find step-by-step instructions for teaching beginning dance units in 10 different dance forms to offer a curriculum of experiences for students in preschool to college settings.

This book contains many special features so that readers can access important information quickly:

- Chapter objectives and summaries- Tables that compile information about different topics- Highlight boxes that draw attention to important information - Self-check lists that provide a quick way to understand a process or learn a new concept- It's Your Turn activities that provide practical, interactive experiences in dance- 33 forms, including lesson plans, teaching evaluations, unit plans, block time plans (with detailed information about what to teach in each class), and scope and sequence forms that show the order in which to teach various dances and techniques- Ready-made rubrics that match the objectives for each of the sample unit plans for evaluation- Sample unit plans for 10 different dance forms, each containing a three-week unit of 15 progressive classes- An extensive list of book, music, and video resources for each dance unit- More than 120 photos and 66 illustrations that illustrate the various dance forms and techniques- Icons for movement, choreographic, and aesthetic principles as they apply to each dance form- Beyond Technique exercises that provide additional learning activities in dance making and dance appreciation for each sample unit- A culminating portfolio project that synthesizes all of the elements explored in the book into a practical product that prospective dance educators can present to potential employers

Even the most experienced dance educators will appreciate the sample units for 10 different dance forms, divided into four categories:

- Creative movement and creative dance- Recreational dance (including social dance, contra dance, folk dance, and square dance)- Concert dance (including ballet, modern dance, jazz, and tap)- Aerobic dance (dance fitness)

"Dance Teaching Methods and Curriculum Design" provides a sound foundation in the art and science of dance pedagogy-for those who seek a rewarding career in teaching dance.

Informed by her father that this is impossible-the performance is sold out-Lena Gabrielle begins her secret journey through the streets of the fabulous historic city, in an effort to get to the Mariinsky to see the ballet. During the course of her travels statues come alive, and she meets an endearing old man (Tchaikovsky), who leads her to the door of the Mariinsky and shows her the stage where the ballet will be performed.
