Transitions: The Difference between Teaching Dance in the Secondary School Setting and Higher Education
Maloney, Betsy
Journal of Dance Education, v4 n4 p124-125 2004
The transition from teaching dance in higher education to the secondary school setting can be turbulent. Dance curriculum for secondary students must meet their developmental and psychological needs, while also fitting into an abbreviated class period. Individuals making this transition must be aware of the different goals that a middle or high school setting requires, such as informing parents about classroom activities and working as a dance "generalist" rather than a specialist.
