Each of these professional development courses for dance artists and dance/arts educators introduces the Movement Alphabet and motif notation, as applied to educational, creative or community settings, or as a tool to facilitate understanding with clients. By the end of the course, you present an application of how you will integrate these literacy tools into your practice. Each part can be taken as a discrete entity. Participants are awarded certificates on the successful completion of each Foundations course.
