Join in for an interesting and useful session on teaching math concepts through dance. Dance TAG (Teaching Artists Group) continues this coming Sunday, March 1 with What's Your Angle? Lessons Learned from Mixing Geometry and Dance with Toni Duncan. It will be held at Cardell Dance Studio, 1713 Melon Street in the Fairmount section. Note the change in time to 12:00 - 2:00. Further details are below.
This workshop will take you through a series of lessons developed to boost middle school students' love and success in math, specifically geometry. Toni Duncan has developed and fine-tuned a dance unit that focuses on angles, triangles, circles, diameters and circumferences. The concepts are supported and enriched by artistic experiences. Pre- and post-tests support her observation that the students get it! Come get it for yourself!
Toni Duncan has been a dance faculty member at the Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School’s Center for Performing and Fine Arts since 2011. She earned her MA in Dance Education from the University of Northern Colorado and holds a bachelor's degree in Dance and Marketing from DeSales University. She has taught at Feet First Dance Center in Phoenixville since 1999. Toni enjoys integrating dance with academic subjects, from math to poetry.
