LMA for Dance Educators K-12 with Frederick Curry
In this workshop, participants will explore strategies for using Laban Movement Analysis (LMA) to achieve standards-based student learning outcomes in dance. LMA has its origins in the career of dance artist and theorist Rudolf Laban (1879-1958). LMA informs much dance education theory and practice in the United States, and is at the heart of New York’s 92Y Dance Education Laboratory’s (DEL) Model of Dance Education. In addition to exploring LMA-based pedagogy, workshop participants will gain access to DEL curricular materials via the DELCOR website.
