Movement Research
movement research is one of the world's leading laboratories for the investigation of dance and movement-based forms. Valuing the individual artist and their creative process and vital role within society, Movement Research is dedicated to the creation and implementation of free and low-cost programs that nurture and instigate discourse and experimentation. Movement Research strives to reflect the cultural, political and economic diversity of its moving community, including artists and audiences alike.

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 Is their goal to share their artistic practice, the ideology behind their aesthetic, tools for making art, historical reference points, movement skills, or something else?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.
