"This course really addressed the artist within and reminded me why I am passionate about not just teaching, but dance as an art form. By going through the choreography process myself, it inspired me to see how much my own students could benefit from being guided through the process. I really love the experience and wisdom of Professor Sprague and all she has to offer."
"I learned a lot from this class and I was challenged to make my choreographic process better and more efficient. I liked the discussion boards and the peer feedback given and taken. This helped us see and develop our choreography and make it better."
"I now have an arsenal of rubrics to choose from and I loved the reflection portion of this course and each individual week's assignment. I also found the peer discussion incredibly helpful."
"I feel I have a better understanding of a different method of choreographing and how to present this process to my students. The content in this course was excellent and beneficial to me personally. My students are quite beginner and the content seemed a bit more advanced. I'd need to break things down and give things in stages."
"This course was very beneficial in learning new ways to approaching teaching choreography to beginning students. Although I struggled to keep up with the assignments, I found them extremely beneficial and in particular by placing me into the student choreographer role. It also showed me new ways to organize and offer supportive prompts to get students to respond, analyze, and reflect on their own and their peers' work. I am very appreciative to be able for this course."
