5-DAY SCHOOL RESIDENCY (K-9)
Book an active learning dance unit and get your students’ muscles and minds ACTIVE with dance. Designed by teachers, for teachers, the DANCEPL3Y Residency is structured to follow best-practice in pedagogy through a 4-lesson “Teaching Dance for Understanding” dance unit that supports HPE curriculum, allows students to learn foundational moves from a variety of dance styles, create their own movements using the elements of dance, and prepare simple routines that demonstrate their learning. Self-confidence grows as each student discovers their own unique style, applies interpersonal skills through group work and demonstrates creative thinking skills through movement-‐based tasks and activities. The DANCEPL3Y Residency is taught by Certified DANCEPL3Y-Ed instructors who not only facilitate an engaging learning space for students, but also provide supports for assessment and evaluation throughout the unit, as well as teacher involvement in the lesson plans.
