Dance Education Laboratory (DEL) model

Saturday, November 14, 2020, 10:00 AM until 12:30 PM

Registration is required
Join us in the Zoom room as we explore a choreographer’s voice through the Dance Education Laboratory (DEL) model, which emphasizes a comprehensive and inclusive approach to embodied learning. Highly experienced DEL facilitators will guide you through an exploration and investigation of a choreographer’s work through multiple entry points in order to design accessible lessons and activities for all dance learners. In this interactive, virtual workshop participants will: Learn about the DEL model and discover possible applications of the workshop content to one’s own teaching context and explore different approaches to looking at a choreographer’s work including movement analysis, embodied research, improvisational exploration and collaborative choreography. Join Ann Biddle (Director of DEL at Jacob’s Pillow) and Felice Santorelli (DEL Facilitator) in this online workshop series highlighting the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Interactive site. Re-envision dance history as embodied inquiry using the extensive video and multimedia resources of the Jacob’s Pillow Archives. DELving into Dance History is an ongoing series and is designed for K-12 dance educators, and college dance history enthusiasts to enhance remote and in-person teaching. Each course investigates different dance artists through multiple contextual lenses in order to gain an holistic understanding of dance history. Each course can be taken on its own.
