MISSY STRONG

Movement and Folkdance in Elementary Music: A Sequential Approach

Folk dancing allows students to experience their growing musicality in engaging and authentic ways. In addition to demonstrating beat competence, students will more easily understand form while also experiencing an authentic community music-making activity that allows for opportunities for positive peer interaction. Learn how to confidently incorporate movement and folk dancing into your general music classroom and beyond. You’ll leave with a portfolio of dances, an understanding of how to sequence their instruction, a framework for a Family Folkdance event, and lots of dancing experience!

Topics covered:

*A rationale for teaching folk dance 

*Preparing in the early music classroom.

*Choosing the best dances (and music) for your population.

*Introduce and call folk dances in and out of the classroom.

*Build community through folk dance events

LILLIE FEIERABEND

Folk Song and Dance Around the World

Humor, love, kindness and joy are universal. Folk Dance builds a bridge where we are offered a glimpse into another culture and are delighted to find ourselves looking back. A country’s musical culture can also offer insight into its history, spirit, values, and heart. We can appreciate and begin to know a little about a people when we move in their footsteps. These delightful gifts, traversing not only cultures, but generations, can lead to greater awareness and global understanding. This lively workshop will introduce participants to folk dances, passing games, play parties, rounds, and clapping games from twenty countries around the world.
