Language of Dance® Practitioner Professional Development

University of Texas at Austin

Austin, TX

June 22-28, 2014, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm

An invitation only event! This seven-day course will provide you with a playful learning and creating experience to share new pedagogical developments in the LOD Approach and also an opportunity for professional exchange, dance literacy sharing, and exploring new ideas.

Over the last three years, we have evolved the focus of the LOD approach to include equal emphasis on theory, application, and pedagogy. The result is a new Language of Dance Foundations course emphasizing multiple applications of the Movement Alphabet in dance education and creative practices. As much as we want to share these new developments with you, we also want you to share with us. How are you using LOD?
