Dance Into More Engaged Learning: Dance moves and choreography can be useful in boosting students’ interest in and understanding of coding and other subjects.
Students use their bodies to communicate and express meaning through purposeful movements. Dance practice integrates choreography, performance, and appreciation of and responses to dance and dance making. Research shows learning through structured movement can be a fun and educational practice. Like music, dances have countable steps that can be used to enhance learning.
