Following the success of the En cadence, s’il vous plait! dance and music conference in Autumn 2012, the European Association of Dance Historians gladly announces its next conference, in collaboration with the RAD-Royal Academy of Dance
Teaching Dance History: Histories of Dance Teaching
Historical and pedagogical perspectives on Dance
Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd November 2014
Royal Academy of Dance, London
The conference provides a forum for two different lines of enquiry and
potential conversations between them. The first concerns the challenges
in teaching dance history in a variety of learning contexts (secondary
education, higher education, vocational training, teacher training,
community dance, etc.). How do we, as teachers, choose what to teach
and how do we engage today’s students in the historiographical process?
Given the fundamental challenges of postmodernism, what ‘narratives’
are to be included in a dance history curriculum and how do we promote
history as both theory and practice?
The second line of enquiry concerns the historical development of dance
teaching and the economic, social, cultural and artistic contexts which
shape concepts of education, training and learning. How do we know that
what we do today is ‘best practice’ and what can be learned by looking at
dance education and teaching models from the past?
