Dance Talks: Dance Education Symposium

Passionate about dance being part of every child’s school week? Listen in to hear about programmes currently being delivered in schools, the incredible impacts dance has on these young people and to look at the next steps for integrating dance into classrooms in schools throughout Ireland.

As part of Irish Youth Dance Festival, a Dance Education Symposium took place on 6th July 2017 featuring a panel of dance education specialists including Toni Bravo (US) and Yvonne Young (Scotland) and Mags Byrne (Arts Council). This event was in partnership with IYDF, Dublin Youth Dance Company and Dance Ireland.

This talk is directly aimed at dance teachers at all levels, those teaching at primary and secondary school level, where students now have grown up entirely or almost entirely in the 21st century internet and smartphone culture. This talk may also be of interest to school teachers at both primary and secondary school level.
