Utilizing the same participatory choreographic structures and the universal dance vocabulary of BEST (Body, Energy, Space, and Time) employed by Hubbard Street teaching artists in Chicago Public Schools, this session lays the groundwork for bringing dance into the classroom and fostering kinesthetic learning. Model units and activities shared during this introduction are appropriate both for general-education and dance teachers.
GET THE FACTS: In the 2015-16 school year, 59% of reporting CPS elementary schools met the 120 minutes of weekly arts instruction recommendation, up from 47% two years ago.
