Dance, Teaching and Learning: Shaping Practice - 3rd Edition Cover

Dance Teaching and Learning: Shaping Practice (3rd Edition) will specifically benefit those taking the Diploma in Dance Teaching and Learning (accredited by Trinity College London), but will also support those studying other dance qualifications. Whether you are an experienced teacher or embarking on a new career, this book offers information and guidance to help enrich your understanding and improve your practice.

Whilst the book has been written for those who work in community, recreational, adult and youth contexts in dance, it will benefit a wide range of people, including: independent dance artists/practitioners; employees in a variety of dance organisations and companies; PGCE students, and those enrolled in training and education establishments within the UK, Europe and elsewhere offering undergraduate and postgraduate courses in dance education and related fields.

Contributions from fourteen leading experts in the field provide:

  • Overviews of key education theories, concepts and frameworks, applied specifically to dance.
  • Information about child development, anatomy, physiology and safe and effective practice.
  • Case studies, reflective questions and bibliographies for further study.
  • Illustrations of the range of practice that takes place within various contexts in which practitioners work with adults and young people.
