Rechoreographing Learning: Dance as a Way to Bridge the Mind-Body Divide in Education (Routledge Advances in Theatre & Performance Studies) (Paperback)
This book addresses the mind-body dichotomy in movement and dance.
This book includes a description of the often-forgotten kinesthetic sense, body awareness, somatic practices, body-based way of thinking, mental imagery, nonverbal communication, human empathy, and symbol systems, what occurs in the brain during learning, and why and how movement and dance should be part of school curricula. This exploration arguers that becoming more aware of bodily sensations serves as a basis for knowing, communicating, learning, and teaching through movement and dance.
This book will be of great interest to scholars and students interested in teaching methodology and for courses in physical education, dance, and education.
