Children's Dance. Revised Edition.
Fleming, Gladys Andrews, Ed.; And Others
The findings of the National Dance Association's Task Force on Children's Dance are presented through position papers on the status of dance in education. In Part 1, the purposes and projects of the task force are outlined. The chapters in Part 2 list guidelines for a comprehensive dance program and provide examples of the use of the guidelines in nine schools. The chapters in Part 3 deal with providing alternative movement activities in schools, experiences of male students and teachers in dance education, folk and ethnic contributions, related arts, and creative dance activities. Excerpts from four presentations given at the Land of the Lakes Conference on Children's Dance (1972) and an epilogue are presented in Part 4. Lists of suggested books, records, and films and their sources and distributors are presented in Part 5. (FG)
