Classroom Choreography (SM) blog launched!

This blog is dedicated to discussions of dance integration in the classroom: in other words, exploring the tools and techniques of dance-making to drive learning in classrooms.

The posts in this blog, and the comments, will be used in the development of a mass-market book I am writing about the importance of movement for brain development and the power of creating art (in this case, dance) about what we are learning in school, to make it experiential, relevant, motivating, and memorable.

Posts will include excerpts from the manuscript of the book, related thoughts that seem worth putting out into the ether, and anything else that may help raise the consciousness of Americans about this transformational issue.
