Jazz Dance Theory & Practice – Online Course

February 27, 2023 - April 9, 2023

This online course from the National Dance Education Organization (NDEO) traces the continuum of jazz dance from its roots to its many manifestations today. You will explore your own jazz dance identity through a process of examining historical jazz eras and styles (authentic, vernacular, theatrical, and contemporary) and by engaging in reflection, choreographic explorations, and dialogue with classmates. Whether you teach in a privately-owned dance studio, in K-12, or in higher education, this course will offer you the opportunity to practice a historically-rooted approach for teaching jazz dance that is relevant today in contemporary jazz dance practices. By applying essential jazz dance characteristics that are derived from the origins of jazz but are often forgotten in dance studios today, you will be able to integrate a rich understanding of jazz dance to classroom exercises that are already in your tool box. Feedback from classmates and instructor Pat Taylor will open the doors to a dialogue where, as a community, we can each can share successes and challenges. Registration Deadline 2/23. NDEO Member Tuition is $295; Non-Member Tuition is $370. Visit www.ndeo.org/opdiM12
