Posts Tagged ‘Methodology of Teaching Dance’

Dear Dancers and Students,
  • Youtube is a great resource to expand knowledge about dance and artists. As a choreographer & dance history and dance criticism professor, I created a library on my page, which enables dancers to view and analyze historical and contemporary dance pieces. I created 70 playlists (with approximately 900 videos) organized by historical periods and choreographers. Please SUBSCRIBE to my youtube page.
  • Pinterest:  I created a board about METHODOLOGY of TEACHING DANCE.  Subscribe to see amazing images about anatomy, kinesiology, centers of energy to enhance your dance technique and get inspired by accurate imagery.
Have a wonderful Summer!
A hug, Anabella

Lenzu’s eloquent prose reveals reflections of a life devoted to dance performance and education.

  • The May Lab (May 3, 10, 24 & 28 / Sat. from 9:30am-1:30pm) – covers Voice/Acting and Dance Technique.

This workshop develops alignment technique and an understanding of the dynamic in dance. Students solve technical problems, using fundamentals of ballet and modern dance techniques.

Dancers will develop their natural vocal possibilities, exploring the voice by using breathing techniques and activating body resonators. Understand how an actor’s technique and imagination informs the approach to text through action.

  • The June Lab (June 7, 14, 21 & 28 / Sat. from 9:30am-1:30pm) covers Dance Technique and AL/DD Repertory.

This workshop explores the principle: Motion Creates Emotion/Emotion Creates Motion, and emphasizes the use of imagination, interpretation and body coordination and control. My emphasis is on the journey rather than the destination, on understanding the impulses generated by movements and gestures.

  • The July Lab (July 5, 12, 19 & 26/ Sat. from 9:30am-1:30pm) covers Choreography and Improvisation.
This workshop aims to stimulate students to create their own passionate and original dances, exploring the elements of choreography composition. We look not only at what you dance, but also ask the question “Why do you dance?” Dance is the expressive medium of our heart, mind and soul.

  • The July Lab (July 7, 8, 9 &10/ Mon-Thu 10am-1pm) covers Methodology of Teaching Dance. 

Objectives: To offer methodological tools of analysis about how to teach and how to organize and create a teaching plan. Learn to promote artistic education to enhance the social and cultural community. We will investigate and increase creative ability, as well as working towards solving educational problems within specialized pedagogies.

Why? Because we need a humanistic approach in art and dance education.  Continuing education is vital to improve ourselves and participate creatively in society and in the culture in which we live. I believe that education shouldn’t be a preparation for living, but living itself.  Dance is a profound exploration of life. We must improve how we teach Dance as a theoretical and practical discipline.
