All children need opportunities to learn, create, perform and respond to dance in all its forms. Dance provides students, with and without disabilities, a means of expression and communication, an opportunity to collaborate with others in the creative process and the exploration of new movement possibilities. Through this course, educators will learn instructional strategies that successfully include students with disabilities in the PreK-12 school environment, dance studios, and community spaces. Course participants will acquire knowledge and skills needed to plan and implement an effective and inclusive Dance Education program. The course will address legislation related to students with disabilities, characteristics of different disabilities, content and teaching accommodations for learning in dance education, goals and assessment, viewing the performances (via video) of professional dancers with disabilities and a consideration of Disability Justice. Educators who teach in the P-12 schools, private studios, and community dance programs will find this course can assist them with the knowledge and learning experiences to provide meaningful dance education programs for students with disabilities. NOTE: This course does not address the young adult or older adult population. The main focus in on kids and teens.
