The videos are choreographed by Skidmore Dance faculty in collaboration with undergraduate dance students. The unique dance movements are inspired by Anne Green Gilbert’s work, BrainDance, which promotes mind-body connectivity and focus. Videos are organized into three themes of intention: Energy, Focus, and Calm. Additionally, each video is infused with prominent themes of socioemotional learning and college life—instilling a curiosity for the future.
The research study is entitled, “The effects of dance practice on assessment score performance, behavior and attendance in a public school district with high rates of economically disadvantaged students”. We are interested to see how the introduction and regular practice of dance in a public school classroom and an at-home setting effect student academic performance, attendance and behavior. We believe that dance could be a useful tool for teachers and parents in your everyday routine.
