This course offers Lang students the opportunity to mentor elementary school students through the "I Have a Dream: Harlem" afterschool program at P.S. 7, located at 160 East 120th St. In the Tuesday seminar sessions at Lang, students will be exposed to critical pedagogy and transformative arts education as they explore the field of dance in education. On Thursday afternoons Lang students work directly with third- and fourth-grade students in Harlem to develop a curriculum for their small dance groups. At the end of the semester Lang students will help facilitate a performance by their IHD-Harlem students for their families and community. Coursework also includes readings, weekly written assessment papers, a midterm research paper, and a final project where students are required to create a syllabus for future teaching endeavors.
