Dance in Communities: Models and Methods of Building Community and Reciprocity explores dance as a critical element of thriving communities via a series of interrelated units related to community engagement, advocacy, audience building, and fostering partnerships. Additionally, students will explore the relationship between dance and communities, specifically focusing on performance’s stakes and responsibilities in the construction of culturally diverse and inclusive communities. These topics, taken together, comprise a course focused squarely on how dance can impact communities of all sizes, scopes, and geographical locations. Dance as a mode of shared ideation, collaboration, and inclusion is centralized in the course. This course is structured to empower dance educators working in K-12, postsecondary, community, and private studio environments; dance students interested in community engagement and nonprofits; and nonprofit and community administrators or leaders with the knowledge that their individual contributions with dance are artistically, economically, and educationally valuable and powerful in their communities and beyond. The ways dance educators and community individuals and organizations can forge symbiotic relationships to benefit all underlines this course’s mission.
