The Art of Dance in Education

Jacqueline M Smith-Autard Price: $29.95

Despite the great progress of dance in schools, there is no single text which provides a theoretical framework to support the changes in the practice of dance in education and this book seeks to redress that

It provides a theoretical basis for good practice in the art of dance in education by examing the processes of creating, performing and appreciating dances and analysing how dance contributes towrds artistic, aesthetic and cultural education

It then proposes what is meant by good practice in the art of dance in the National Curriculum, school examinations such as GCSE and in higher education dance programmes

But the most important aim of the book is to provide teachers with a clear understanding of what to teach, how to teach it, and the theory behind it
