NYSAIS-Now - Distance Teaching and Learning Series

In response to the current need for teachers to learn and share successful techniques to promote distance learning, NYSAIS has launched a Distance Teaching and Learning Series of eSeminars that focus on the needs of children across the N-12 spectrum. eSeminars in this series are currently free for NYSAIS members. The non-member rate is $50.

Dancing Together Apart

Jessie Levey, Barefoot Dance Center

This eSeminar is designed to share ideas and strategies for teaching dance and movement in an online format. Specialists and generalists who would like to integrate movement into their programs are encouraged to attend. We will review how to use video conferencing to integrate students’ homes and family members in the learning process, and how to facilitate both whole group and breakout group sessions. We will turn the challenges we face as educators into creative opportunities to adjust our teaching goals in order to accommodate student needs during this stressful time, distance learning, and smaller spaces for movement.

Jessie Levey is the founder and director of Barefoot Dance Center in West Park, NY. She creates curricula which seeks to educate the whole person through somatic education, healthy alignment, strong technique, creativity and identity. In addition to teaching at Barefoot, Jessie works with schools and senior centers as an artist-in-residence and leads professional workshops for classroom and dance educators.
