Brain-Compatible Dance Education
By Anne Green Gilbert
Recent scientific research supports the important role movement plays in developing the brain. This highly anticipated text reviews this research and describes how to effectively present holistic lessons to engage all learners and help dancers "to think as well as to move." Explores innovative teaching methods for infants through seniors. Includes the "BrainDance." A must for all interested in creative dance - from the novice to the experienced dance educator!
This book approaches the subject of teaching dance through an understanding of the lesson plan. Besides making connections between "how students learn best and how best to teach," each chapter contains new ways to explore dance concepts so to develop technical, compositional and reflective skills. This is a great companion to Creative Dance for All Ages (item 805110), adding the more about BrainDance and brain information .
Eric Chappelle's BrainDance Music CD (item 851895) and the Music for Creative Dance: Contrast & Continuum CD series (items 850219-850222) correlate with this book.
