Coming up: Practitioner Exchange Dance & Language Learning
As a kinesthetic, non-verbal language, dance can offer another way for humans to communicate, express themselves, and connect with others, and a medium through which to learn a new verbal language. What have you observed about language learning and communication in your dance teaching and in your students? How do you support emerging multilingual children in the dance classroom – in school, studio and community contexts? What structural challenges have you faced in supporting students classified as English Learners, and how have you overcome them? Join bilingual dance educators Kitty Conlon Macías and Andreína Maldonado as they dig into these questions and more. Bring your questions too!
Thursday, June 1
4:30-6pm Pacific via Zoom
$15-40, or $28 for unlimited Exchanges for 12 months
free for PL Users – RSVP to jperena@lunadanceinstitute.
Dance educators, Practitioner Exchanges are a place for you! We hold these collaborative community roundtables each month around different inquiry topics. Bring your questions, your reflections, your experience to these conversations. All welcome.
