Weaving Somatic Theory and Practice through Faculty Collaboration

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  04 January 2013

Abstract

Many universities are now applying somatic practices to dance technique classes. Yet there is little research addressing the pedagogy of somatic theory and practice within a curricular context. Additionally, somatic theory is often taught in separate lecture courses, and there is not much discussion about how to weave somatic theory and practice through interdisciplinary or intradisciplinary approaches. This lecture-demonstration addresses pedagogical strategies for joining somatic theory and practice. We demonstrate strategies and examples of working through various somatic and anatomical concepts and discuss curricular and research possibilities, as well as issues and problems raised during this project.
