Resources for integrating dance with curriculum

December 3rd, 2010 · No Comments · Tags: ··

There are a lot of dancing minds out there at work, developing great ways to integrate dance with curriculum.  Here are a few resources, shared via email on NDEO’s K-12 Special Interest Group Forum.*  These resources offer some nitty gritty about how-to’s & what-do-you-need?’s…


Integrated Dance units, suggested by Sandra Stratton-Gonzalez, available online, such as:

  • “The Beat of Your Feet on the City Streets: Creating Dances from Poetry,”2nd grade, integrating Dance, English Language Arts, Social Studies
  • “Bringing History to Life Through Dance: The Underground Rainroad,” by Ana Nery Fragoso for 5th grade, integrating Dance & Social Studies

Lesson plans from the Kennedy Center’s Artedge:

  • Lessons plans integrating Dance, K-4
  • Lesson plans integrating Dance, 5-8
  • Lessons plans integrating Dance, 9-12

More resources on K-12 integration, from general advocacy to specific ideas, from NDEO’s online store.

Feel free to share more!
