Pedagogies of dance teaching and leading
The recent expansion in children and young people’s participation in dance in the UK has led to increased involvement of dance artists in education. Despite a growing body of evidence that demonstrates the impact dance can have on young people’s physical, psychological and social wellbeing, the pedagogy that delivers it is relatively under-researched. This chapter is especially concerned with the pedagogies of dance artists and practitioners in the informal education and youth sectors. It traces pedagogical developments that have integrated aspects of professional, educational and community dance practices. It suggests aspects of artist-led pedagogy that appear key to enhancing subjective wellbeing.
