Dance in Education: The Greek Reality
Savrami, Katia
Research in Dance Education, v13 n1 p99-106 2012
This is a viewpoint that discusses the criteria applied for an objective, academic assessment of dance education and comments upon the status of dance education both in secondary education schools and professional dance schools in Greece today. The viewpoint concludes by proposing the need for an independent undergraduate dance degree to be established by the Greek Ministry of Education within the School of Fine Arts, University of Athens. If this materializes, it may allow further development and establish the subject of dance, both as a performing art and as an academic discipline in its own right. Furthermore, it may lead to a review of the current dance curricula in secondary education schools. (Contains 1 note.)
