HIV/AIDS in Dance Education: A Pilot Study in Higher Education
Risner, Doug; Thompson, Shara
Journal of Dance Education, v5 n2 p70-76 2005
A pilot research project was conducted to address issues related to the Human Immunodeficiency Virus and Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) in dance in higher education. The primary goals were to summarize the impact of HIV/AIDS on dance and dance education, to document the profession's response (research, curricula, programs, interventions), to identify past and current efforts in HIV/AIDS awareness and education employed by dance educators, to explore current policies, content and delivery mechanisms, and to survey the attitudes and perceptions of dance administrators in higher education about HIV/AIDS education. The different approaches to HIV/AIDS education employed by those in other related education disciples, as well as in sexual education, health, and physical education, are also reviewed.
