Overview

Actively experience, explore, and apply the Language of Dance® Approach to dance and movement to promote: dance literacy; support integration of multiple learning modalities; uncover pedagogical frameworks that support deep learning in dance. Developed by Dr. Ann Hutchinson Guest, this approach immerses you in the world of dance, as revealed by the LOD Movement Alphabet, one of the key dance-based symbolic languages.

Through LOD, deepen your movement embodiment, artistic perception, and expression, and aesthetic valuing and joy in dancing. Each of these professional development courses for dance/arts educators, dance artists, movement specialists, and classroom teachers (K-12, private studio, higher education) introduces the Movement Alphabet, as applied to educational, creative or community settings, or as a tool to facilitate understanding with clients.

Benefits

Experience the LOD framework through  learner-centered pedagogy;

Make meaningful and embodied connections to the  Movement Alphabet

  Use Motif Notation to read and write dance concepts and dances that reveal dance literacy as an integral part of dance teaching and learning in diverse contexts;

  Enhance the integration of kinesthetic, cognitive, and socio-emotional learning in dance education and academic curriculum;

Use LOD in the teaching and learning process to accelerate observation, description, interpretation, analysis, creation, performance, evaluation, and embodiment of skills, knowledge, and understanding;

Refine your performance abilities and artistry through reflection, creative process, critical thinking, and collaborative learning.

Apply pedagogical knowledge using the LOD Framework to current instructional or artistic practice
