Dance in Urban Education

Recording: Dance in Urban Education, Mar 6, 2018

In this session we will discuss/explore the impact of dance in the classroom. As a creative art, dance and movement can be the solution to anxiety, stress, anger, and depression amongst students in urban communities. Through our experience as Heinz Fellows and teaching artists in Pittsburgh we have seen the positive effects of movement in urban school environments and how as a practice, Hip Hop dance promotes culturally relevant pedagogy; allowing students time to decompress, heal, and express.
