Luna Dance Institute hosts its sixteenth annual Summer Institute for dance teaching artists and classroom teachers July 22-28, 2016. Luna’s Summer Institutes (SI) were created to support dance teaching artists to develop their craft. Learning in a collegial group of diverse educators, SI participants improve teaching practice, gain confidence as professionals and develop long-lasting systems of support.

Each year 6 dancers and 6 education practitioners (classroom teachers, social workers, ECE professionals, PE or music specialists) come together for 6 days of intensive study in the dance discipline. Based on participant feedback, we are adding a day seven effective 2014. During the intensive week, they explore:

  • the elements of dance (H’Doubler and Laban)
  • creating & implementing standards-based dance lessons
  • human development zero to 24 years
  • learning theories, in particular critical pedagogy and constructivism
  • observation skills…and more

SI participants then receive follow-up services including coaching & consultation, opportunities for advanced study and collegial exchange for the entire Academic Year.

Applicants are selected from a competitive pool. Participants must be teaching in the 2016-17 year. Deadline to apply: April 15th, 5pm. Contact jperena@lunadanceinstitute.org for an application.
