By Barbara Haselbach.  Basic principles and models for Nursery and Primary School.
The author has had many years' work with Orff Schulwerk which recognizes that dance, language and music represent an original and integrated form of expression. This books shows the relationship of movement to music, to language and poetry, as well as to pictorial or dramatic ideas or objects. One of the intents of the book is to give teachers without professional dance training some stimulation for working with dance education for children from four to ten years old both inside and outside school. It gives the aims, purpose and content of dance education together with material and examples for the teacher interested in dance.
