Experiencing Dance From Student to Dance Artist by Helene Scheff, Marty Sprague, Susan McGreevy-Nichols


Experiencing Dance From Student to Dance Artist by Helene Scheff, Marty Sprague, Susan McGreevy-Nichols

Experiencing Dance presents a complete dance education curriculum for secondary school students with more than an introductory knowledge of dance. The text contains more than 45 lessons, designed to help students create, perform, respond to analyse, connect and understand dance in various styles and settings. The lessons focus on all aspects of dance, including understanding movement potential, dance science, dance forms, historical and cultural aspects of dance and future career directions. The first edition of Experiencing Dance was a best-selling text for secondary school dance courses and this new edition, with its updated lesson plans, full-colour design and student and teacher web resources, promises to be equally popular, if not more so.
