This course explores the concepts and content essential for quality teaching and learning for creative dance for early childhood. Cognitive and child development, standards, assessment, pedagogy and the foundations of curriculum development will be investigated through readings, research, observation and interactive projects. The course will explore BrainDance, developed by Anne Green Gilbert, and its 8 patterns of movement (Breath, Tactile, Core-Distal, Head-Tail, Upper-Lower, Body Side, Cross Lateral, and Vestibular) to show how it addresses child development principles and current brain research. Participants will grapple with essential questions, and learn the skills to be able to develop and implement a creative dance curriculum outline for either 3-5 or 6-8 years of age.
Book required: None
