This five-day summer school designed for artists, teachers or facilitators with an interest in developing their own practice and understanding within different dance contexts. Students should be aged 17+ and have some previous experience of leading dance or arts education projects.
By the end of the course students should have:
- Examined the role of Dance Facilitator in a variety of contexts.
- Explored practical exercises that support creativity in key areas of dance work
- Developed confidence in and understanding of their own facilitation style and practice.
- Engaged with reflective practice; both for the benefit for their participants as well as their own professional development.
During this intensive summer school students will engage in a practical and theoretical exploration of contemporary dance facilitation. The course will examine this role within each individual, the groups they work with and the wider cultural and educational landscape. Students will investigate the use of dance as a tool for learning and creative expression. They will also explore facilitation that leads directly to creating new performance work.
Throughout the week tutors will introduce a variety of models that touch upon ways to plan and deliver dance. There will be several opportunities to engage with different practical exercises and approaches for delivery. Participants will also be asked to consider how their current practice could translate into a variety of contexts in line with their own professional development.
Students will be expected to reflect individually on the activities and strategies explored. A key element of the course is establishing an ecology of reflective practice within the group that will allow each student to challenge their own working processes.
By the end of the course each student will have established new ideas and pathways for their professional development. They will also have access to a new network of practitioners that they can continue to reflect with as they apply their learning.
