Even in these Corona times, the Orff Schulwerk pedagogy assumes that everyone can still dance musically and with intention and purpose! In this workshop we will experience the playfulness and passion of moving with ourselves and with others in online spaces. We will create alternative ways of experiencing embodiment through dance, connecting movement to music, and interacting with partners. The emphasis will be on material for children aged 7-11.
Discussion and reflections on approaches to teaching movement in music classes will support the physical work.
