Do you need a more clear trajectory for your dance students’ growth over the entire term, broken down into individual lessons that are not only productive, but fun? The newly revised and professionally edited Revised Holistic Guide to Dance Lesson Planning enables you to easily plan a year’s worth of lessons that address dance technique, creative and performance skills, and overall well-being through social emotional learning.
This extensive 44-page resource guides you through the entire dance lesson planning process, from developing a holistic curriculum that helps students grow in dance technique, artistry, and social-emotional skills, to exciting and effective individual lesson plans for each class meeting. The guide contains two sample units and dance lesson plans, one for an advanced beginner jazz class with pre-teen students, and one for an advanced ballet class with teenager or young adults. The samples are complete with detailed example exercises, so that you can see the dance lesson planning process in action. The guide also features templates for your curriculum, unit schedules, unit outlines, and dance lesson plans – both in beautifully designed printable documents and in a fully customizable online format!
This dance lesson planning guide is based on my experience as a performer, choreographer, and educator of ballet, modern, musical theatre, jazz, and jazz-derived forms like lyrical and contemporary It is designed to be broad enough to apply to a range of dance genres and styles, but it does come from the perspective of Western concert dance.
