This professional learning program will introduce hip hop dance into the classroom space as a tool to explore thematic content and assess student understanding. Educators will experience hip hop dance as an opportunity to have fun, reflect, discuss, and analyze creative teaching strategies. Activities such as the story circle exercise and choreography created from thematic content will support self and social awareness. The dance-based activities are designed to offer opportunities for educators to employ hip hop dance as a tool for activating shared experiences that foster self-awareness and collaborative relationships.
