LOD Lesson for Remote Learning
Dear LOD Community,
Here is a learning packet and other LOD resources, including a few different items for people who may not otherwise be familiar with LOD or the benefits studying LOD can offer.
1. LOD Literacy Processes
2. A language of dance unit on Planes in Space.
3. Accompanying word document with assessment ideas for notation based dance learning online
4. A basic movement alphabet chart
Here are two links to help you with the material: (These are unlisted so therefore can only be shared via link)

A talk through the Planes in Space score: https://youtu.be/ZemlHT3aeao
I want to extend my hand as a Language of Dance Specialist for these time of change. I have experienced how LOD can make online assignments more manageable, structured and effective. I have over 10 years of experience teaching online with LOD in both asychronous situations and through Zoom conferencing. I don’t know everything, but I have climbed a number of learning curves over the years that might be helpful.
Also, I am holding free 30 minute Improvisational sessions using the Language of Dance from 1:15-1:45pm (Pacific) every Tuesday and Thursday on Instagram Live @dancingpoetess. This would be good for anyone who would like an LOD refresher or free movement session. https://www.instagram.com/dancingpoetess/?hl=en
Lastly I have made public a series of my LOD and Tea YouTube videos with introductions to the movement alphabet concepts and some essential notation guidelines to help you feel confident utilizing this tool in your teaching. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvSfcmPzQ3DVeQrm3mvx4ow
I would love to support my colleagues as much as possible. It helps me feel connected when I feel I am of service. :)
