Sequencing Folk Dance in the Music Classroom

Just as music teachers sequence rhythmic and melodic learning, we can also sequence the teaching of folk dance. In addition to teaching dances for enjoyment and cultural context, come learn and experience a framework for sequencing the "content" of folk dancing. Participants will learn dances for use in the classroom and discuss how to sequence folk dances into a meaningful progression that enables students to spend less time struggling and more time moving.
