Dance Education Laboratory Workshops



UMass Amherst (30 Eastman Ln, Amherst, MA 1004, Amherst MA)

Join us for two upcoming dance education opportunities!

**DELving into the Archives: September 23, 10am-1pm at the Jacob’s Pillow Archives in Becket, MA**

Discover the wealth of materials available in the newly expanded Pillow Archives! Participants will explore the Archives in an interactive and embodied way as they learn how to bring dance history to life through the DEL methodology. 

**Movement Sentence Choir: October 15, 3-6pm at Totman Gym Studio 204, UMass Amherst**

This workshop will introduce participants to the DEL model’s comprehensive and inclusive framework for teaching dance to diverse populations. Participants will also create a movement sentence choir inspired by the large community-based movement choirs of Rudolf Laban in the 1900s.

*All workshops are open to dance enthusiasts, educators, and movers of all ages and experience levels, ages 16+. Discounts available to college students, regional dancers and dance educators, ACDA members, and MADEO members. Contact to learn more.*

*Facilitated by Ann Biddle, Director of DEL at Jacob's Pillow, and Felice Santorelli, DEL Facilitator, DEL workshops are designed to encourage inquiry-based learning, celebrate collaborative dance making, and build community. Lead support for the Dance Education Lab at Jacob’s Pillow is generously provided by the Arnhold Foundation.*
