DANCE EDUCATORS AND SCHOLARS FORUM AUGUST 7-10th
MoBBallet Symposium will not just break the mold, it will build a new one by drafting a blueprint for ballet and beyond.
Dance teachers plant the first seeds in students. The Dance Educators and Scholars Forum is a space for dance educators in divergent educational spaces (conservatory, studio, academia). All these educational spaces are vital aspects of our artistic ecosystem. This historical, intellectual, artistic, highly curated forum will focus on shifting the culture of ballet training, and developing a lens, and practice that centers, IDEA, cultural competence and the students personal development and humanity. Using the divergent structures of the “Ballet School” and that of the “Academy” as tools, dance educators will be able to share their theories, methodologies, barriers and queries around how to create safe, healthy, culturally competent, decolonized spaces that produce well trained, completely formed humans! The Educators and Scholars Forum offers: lectures, panels and workshops lead by MoBBallet Founder Theresa Ruth Howard, industry professionals and presenting scholars. Symposium Submissions may relate to the following topics: Black dance archives and history Anti-racist and inclusive pedagogy Decolonizing ballet/curriculum Organizational and department culture Rethinking pedagogy and curriculum I.D.E.A. in ballet Black dance archives and history Teaching through intersectionality Reimagining dance history Cultural competence in the studio
