As part of a program of retribution of the National Fund for Arts and Culture (FONCA), I went to Aguascalientes to teach a course on Methods and Materials of Dance Education.
The course was offered to teachers of the program PROARTE, funded by the Cultural Institute of Aguascalientes. This program sends teaching artists to public schools to cover areas that are not covered by the school's curriculum: Drama, Dance, Visual Arts, Literature and Music.
During an intensive week of theory and practice, I was able to summarize almost all the content of my Masters in Education: Mosston's teaching styles, Laban Movement Analysis, Ugandan dances and songs, Open Structures, Music and Movement, the theories of Freire, Gardner and Shor, and much more I believe.
I must say that I was impressed of PROARTE and their commitment to arts education. It was also fun to see myself immerse in the same line of work in Mexico as the one I had in New York, being a teaching artist, going from school to school.
It was a beautiful and rewarding experience to see all the material I gave them received with so much gratitude, curiosity, and enthusiasm.
