The State of Dance Education in North Carolina
Howell, Christie Lynch
Journal of Dance Education, v4 n4 p115-118 2004
This article examines the current status of dance education in North Carolina. Key issues impacting dance, including public school laws and policies, the impact of state and national accountability movements, graduation requirements, and health initiatives, are identified and described. Specific events that have shaped the status of dance education in North Carolina, such as the Basic Education Program, are addressed. The balanced curriculum initiative, which promotes dance and arts education as part of a comprehensive education for all children, and proactive advocacy measures that dance advocates everywhere can implement are identified. While North Carolina has experienced some decline in dance and arts education programs in recent years, administrators and decision makers seem to be making philosophical shifts in acknowledging the importance and value of the arts in our schools.
