Despite the great Sir Ken Robinson's pointing the fact out, in his popular TED talk of a few years ago, dance is still the most marginalized of disciplines in schools, and it is not even listed as a subject area on this website. The name of this group is Art/Music/Drama. The denial of the role of the moving body in learning is pretty complete and not only here. However, the good news is there is much to understand and value about how dance helps children (and adults for that matter!) understand their worlds, communicate with others, and discover their own expressive personalities. If there is any interest here in discussing the ways in which dance is a powerful tool for transformative learning, write away!
