Teaching Ugandan Traditional Dances and Drumming in Summer Camps
Mabingo, Alfdaniels
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v88 n5 p20-25 2017
Dances and drum rhythms from African traditions have been integrated into summer camp activities in the United States as a response to the ever-globalized environments in which these camps are located and the diversity of the campers and teachers that they attract. This reflective article draws on critical reflections, observations and experiences of the author to reveal how he developed and applied instructional strategies for teaching Ugandan dances and drumming in a summer camp in 2013. The article discusses sociocultural education theories, selection of dances and accompaniment, and teaching plans for the dance and drumming activities. The author provides perspectives that teachers and instructors in recreational settings can consider as they identify, develop and apply activities from non-Western cultures in their programs.
