Colorado Dance Education Organization Annual Conference

Graduate Credit for Reflection on Topics from the CoDEO Conference

DNCE 508 is provided by the University of Northern Colorado’s Extended Campus Professional Development Office as a professional development opportunity for dance educators. Professional development opportunities are provided by face-to-face attendance at the Colorado Dance Education Organization (CoDEO) annual conference. The goal of attendance at the CoDEO conference is to provide dance educators opportunities to update their skills and knowledge in terms of dance education content and curricula. This course will require the dance educators to attend the annual CoDEO conference sessions designed specifically for dance teachers and the dance performances presented during the conference.

The content of these sessions has included: prevention of dance injuries, working with differently abled students, updated information about the dance standards, the female athlete triad, grant writing tips, Understanding by Design lesson development, BrainDance approaches, choreographic tools, improvisation prompts, use of imagery in dance technique class, and classes in modern, character, Bollywood, musical theatre, square and jazz dance.

See the syllabus for details about the reflection and follow-up assignment.
