Movement Research Studies Project: Artists in K-12 Schools
Conceived and moderated by Diana Crum
With panelists Lynn Brown, Donna Costello, Randy Luna, Jessica Nicoll, Jules Skloot
What is the role of the dance teaching artist in schools? Many artists make a living by teaching grades K-12 in the NYC school system. Is their goal to share their artistic practice, the ideology behind their aesthetic, tools for making art, historical reference points, movement skills, or something else? Experienced voices from different arenas of dance-in-education and others in attendance shared their questions and ideas, reflected on their practice and how the work of teaching artists impacts education and culture in this city.
