For Dance Educators:
MMDG’s workshops for dance educators use Mark Morris’ repertory as a framework for analyzing and developing pedagogical tools and practices. Focused on major content areas in dance education, topics include “Musicality in the Classroom,” “Lesson Planning and Designing a Unit,” “Curriculum Mapping for Dance,” “Performance Readiness and Embodying a Character,” “Compositional Skills,” and more.
For Non-Dance Educators:
MMDG’s professional development workshops for non-dance educators are specifically designed to be taught in a traditional classroom environment. Held at partner organization locations, workshops are created in collaboration with each organization and led by professionals from the Dance Group’s Education team. The aim is to provide teachers with a toolbox for integrating movement into their classrooms in the form of “Brain Breaks” and activities that further curricular concepts in respective subject areas.
