Brigitte Heusinger von Waldegge, Associate Professor at Philipps—University in Marburg, Germany is an educator, instructor of contemporary dance and author. She has developed a distinctive syllabus of Enabling Dance in Education and engages students in an experience of dance that involves physical and intellectual problem solving and generates curiosity, creativity, community, and discovery. She is a co—founder of a unique Masters Program, Cultural Education in Schools. She comes to Philadelphia as part of an international dialogue on Dance in Education and will be visiting and working with Mady Cantor’s Elementary Modern Class on Monday, October 17.
The class will be about the pleasure of moving and making dances, beginning with structures that generate spontaneous impulses and tapping into movement skills from daily life. She will introduce compositional principles that will facilitate the crafting, sharing, and merging of individual dance into collective dances. The class runs from 12:10-1:30. Space is very limited so if you are interested in participating or watching, contact Madeline Cantor at email@example.com.
