Community-Based Learning: Choreography & Performance Studies

Professor: Kimani Fowlin
Credits: 4

About the Course:

Within this community-based learning course you will experience the transformative powers of dance to create community. Come experience the wonders of teaching dance from creating the lesson plan to implementing it in a progressive elementary school. The academic connections to math, literacy and social emotional learning are undeniable. Connecting the theme of the Fall Dance Show into the dance residency will be the objective to clearly and age appropriately define this theme for our first grade participants. There will be a final showing of learning objectives demonstrated through the final presentations. Drew students will also perform short excerpts of their dances from the Fall Dance Show. The class will include off-campus travel and other extra requirements associated with working with minors. Students will need to register for both the course and the lab.

About Community-Based Learning:

Community Based Learning (CBL) classes, also sometimes called Service Learning Classes, foster the ability to connect academic learning with action in the world. At Drew, CBL classes strengthen community partners that serves the common good. They fulfill the Off-Campus Experience requirement and qualify as one of the Launch program’s immersive experiences.
