Luna’s ongoing efforts to connect artists through inquiry has a new platform! Our teaching artist fellowship program has three amazing fellows ready to share their experience with you in 2022.
The teaching artist fellowship program provides coaching in leadership and the practitioner-research investigations of selected fellows. Now, in the spirit of inquiry, you have a chance to engage with these leaders through Luna’s Ask a Fellow platform!
Calling for Questions
Do you have a question about family dance, inclusive teaching practice, responsive teaching, or any other aspect of dance teaching? Are you curious about something in dance education, but don’t have a fully formed question? That’s okay! Submit your questions and curiosities below. Fellows will respond via video, audio, or written word on this page and social media.
You can also join us for Ask a Fellow LIVE!, a Zoom panel with the fellows May 16, 2022 and bring your inquiries there for an in-the-moment response.
- I’m curious about emergent curriculum – what does this look like when you’re teaching?
- Some of my high school students come to class not always wanting to dance right now. How do I engage them?
- My partner teacher and I interpret students’ behaviors differently? How do I start a conversation?
- I’m starting to feel dissatisfied in my teaching. Do you ever feel this way? What do you do to liven it up?
Former MPACT intern and Summer Institute alum ’09, Rossana Alves, returns to Luna as a family dance fellow. After completing her studies at Luna, Rossana headed back to her native Brazil to launch family dance programs in various structures and research how to bring dance to mothers and babies. She is developing leadership skills in program facilitation, including supporting our current MPACT interns.
