Dance teaching stories of perseverance, resilience, adaptability & creativity
2020-21 was a year of immense challenges, and surprise opportunities, and through it all dance educators have made dance happen for their students and community–learning video editing to teach asynchronously, building home studios for synchronous teaching, figuring out the ins and outs of hybrid and concurrent teaching, setting up tents to teach outdoors, and sometimes doing this all simultaneously. Now in 2021-22, with most teaching and learning happening in-person, the challenges haven’t waned. Dance educators are still teaching through COVID. This Time Capsule shares the stories of these teachers, the obstacles they overcome, and the moments of inspiration and joy, and celebrates their perseverance, resilience, adaptability, and creativity.
