DESCRIPTIONBrain-Compatible Dance Education is a nationally and internationally recognized teaching methodology. Classes are planned and presented using brain-compatible principles that make learning fun and enjoyable for all types of students. We implement a five-part lesson plan for each dance session. Students explore a variety of dance concepts throughout the session by warming up with the BrainDance, exploring the concept, developing skills, creating, and cooling down. The five-part lesson plan alternates teacher-directed activities with student-centered activities, and developing skills with improvisation. This structure provides the repetition and novelty that engages all learners. This holistic approach develops every student into a whole dancer as skilled technician, critical thinker, collaborator, and creator.
