Teaching about dance (what is dance?)
I am a high school teacher and this year I am teaching a class that covers the fine arts (music, dance, visual art, theatre) and I am approaching the unit on dance. I have ZERO dance knowledge or skill and have been desperately searching for resources. There is an overwhelming amount of vocabulary and styles and aspects of history out there, so I am wondering if you could give me some advice to help me focus. The unit will only last for one quarter. What are 10 (give or take a few) vocabulary terms that are foundational for understanding dance? And if I were to divide the unit by genre, which genres should I focus on? Lastly, are there any videos/documentaries you can recommend? Thank you!
