The Dance Kinesiology Teachers' Group Conference
Do you teach dance kinesiology or anatomy for dancers? Would you like to meet other dance science educators and collectively brainstorm about teaching pedagogy, sharing success stories and challenges? Come and participate in an interactive Conference, organized by the Dance Kinesiology Teachers' Group, to be held June 20-22, 2014 at Lindenwood University (USA), hosted by the Department of Dance. All sessions will be studio-based, include discussion and movement sessions, and emphasize interaction. We are reserving part of the conference for Karen Clippinger, M.S.P.E. Professor
and her workshop: "The Dancer's Hip: Optimizing Turnout, Extensions and the Arabesque in Dance."
In 2001, The Dance Kinesiology Teachers’ (DKT) Group was established by a group of four educators across several universities in the United States, many of whom had worked directly with Sally Fitt, a dance science educator and author of the well-used text, "Dance Kinesiology." The DKT group's mission was to help educators share teaching strategies, educational resources and meet other educators integrating dance with science and somatics. Since 2001, the initial, core group of DKT's has grown extensively and several conferences have been organized over the last several years in order to share teaching insights and resources.
