Advanced Technique & Pedagogy 3-Credit Course Description:
Offered exclusively as a continuation of the 2-week ‘Teaching Contemporary Limon’ workshop, this course centers on advanced skills in modern dance technique with focus on movement precision, musicality, and performance leading to pedagogy. Emphasis is on expanding individual’s technical and expressive capabilities and developing instructional ability in modern pedagogy. Students will investigate the concepts and constructs of their home dance “technique” from a pedagogical perspective, including the use of technology and assessment to enhance student experience and comprehension.
First session starts at 10am with a two-hour technique class. This will be followed by an orientation to the program, when you will be given a detailed schedule. After a lunch break, there will be two afternoon sessions, ending at 4:30pm.
The workshop is open to teachers and graduates of teaching programs. It is also open to dancers trained in the Humphrey/Limón tradition who are interested in learning to teach the technique. It is designed to guide each participant to find an individual approach to Limón-based teaching. The program's official website can be found here.
