The Mark Morris Dance Group’s Teaching Artist Summer Seminar is a two-day workshop for teaching artists at any stage of their career to gain new skills and perspectives. Built on Mark Morris’ vision for dance education, the seminar is led by Mark Morris Dance Group company members, principal teaching artists of the Mark Morris Dance Center, and the Education team.
Using Mark Morris’ L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato as a point of reference, this seminar will provide teaching artists with the tools and understanding of early childhood dance education through the following pedagogical values:
- Incorporating music and rhythm, both live and recorded, in the classroom
- Leveraging cultural resources in curriculum development
- Creating an inclusive learning environment through differentiation practices
Saturday – Sunday, August 3-4, 2019, 9:00am-5:30pm (breakfast included)
