Out and About: Workshop in Philly with Catherine Gallant (4/12 @1PM)

Interested in joining in the discussion about dance and education? Want to think more about teaching dance? Join Dance TAG (Teaching Artist Group) this Sunday, April 12 for a workshop with Catherine Gallant.

Live from New York: The Blueprint in Action
It’s from 1:00 – 3:00 at the Performance Garage
1515 Brandywine St.
Philadelphia, PA

There are 250 teaching artists with full-time dance jobs in the public schools in NYC. Catherine Gallant, a leading veteran member of this artistic cohort uses NYC’s Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in Dance, a comprehensive approach that includes dance literacy and arts integration. She will teach sample classes and demonstrate the activities she uses to structure her classes and incorporate cultural and historical material. These ideas can be adapted to many teaching settings, and all ages of students. Take advantage of this chance to experience (and borrow!) some of the good ideas and momentum in dance teaching coming out of public education in New York.

RSVPs are appreciated at info@philadanceprojects.org.

Philadelphia Dance Project’s Dance TAG is supported by the Stockton Rush Bartol Foundation.
