Dance teachers learn to teach dance for film by participating in cinematography and editing explorations with Frame Dance artists. They learn to teach film and editing basics through a series of investigative assignments and reflections, front-loading the skills students will need to create and execute a 2-3 minute dance film. Teachers will use our curriculum to guide dancers in their choices about choreography, music, camera shots, editing software, costumes and locations, titles and credits, and more.
Filmmaking is powerful because the artist chooses what the audience sees, and, literally and artistically, how the subject is framed. Using our screendance curriculum, dance teachers will give their students an exciting new stage for their art and ideas, along with the technical skills and critical skills to make their work excellent.
Contact Education Director Kerri Neimeyer at Kerri.Lyons.Neimeyer@framedance.org to set up a time to talk more about how we can equip you to bring screendance into your classroom.
