Alumni Online Seminar 2021

Alumni Online Seminar on 7 October 2021 at 4pm CET with Dr. Anja Centeno García

What carries your teaching? - Competence and action orientation in dance education

Dance instruction is more than just teaching technique. Dance teachers accompany dancers of different ages on their dance and artistic path, which is often closely linked to their personal development. A good accompaniment gives freedom and orientation at the same time. The extent to which dance pedagogy can benefit from current approaches to general didactics will be the subject of an online seminar in which you can contribute your questions and experiences.

Join us to discuss elements of didactic action, the shift from teaching to learning as well as questions of competence development and holistic support in relation to dance teaching with the university didactician and communication manager Dr. Anja Centeno García. You can expect theoretical impulses and a methodically supported, moderated exchange. 

The Online Seminar will be held in English language and (if necessary) both in German and English langauge.

For the first time ever, on 11-13 Oct. 2019, a dance therapy workshop was held for Palucca University of Dance Dresden international alumni. The workshop was conducted within the framework of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) alumni projects. The workshop was dedicated to the topic “Dance Therapy” and the associated professional perspectives for dancers, dance teachers and choreographers who have graduated from the University. The professional and musical direction for the workshop was provided by alumna Cornelia Widnmer (MA Choreography) and her husband Walter Widmer  Here you will find the workshop programme as retrospective.

The Palucca University of Dance Dresden considers it a responsibility to offer its graduates further professional training opportunities as active support for the development of their professional perspectives. This University objective is supported by opportunities such as the Alumni Workshop for Dance Therapy in 2019. More opportunities for professional training for our alumni are in planning.
