Welcome to DAY ONE of the Spring Fever Giveaway 2011!
Kicking things off for us is abc for dance!
abc for dance creates teaching tools, curriculum and specialty manuals for dance educators and dancers.
In 1989 Anneliese Burns Wilson created the training materials and examination criteria for the Pan American Teachers of Dance Performing Arts Department, materials which were later refined into a leveled curriculum that was used in several dance studios. Ten years later, her company, The Step Shoppe Unlimited, was awarded a grant to create teacher training materials, curricula and workshops to prepare K-12 academic school teachers in New Jersey for the newly adopted Core Content Standards in Dance.
In 2000, Anneliese formed abc for dance to focus on the creation of studio and academic curricula and teaching materials. The materials are reviewed by leaders in the fields of dance, body mechanics, childhood development and education and are used in more than 1000 schools and studios worldwide. Each syllabus is created with the ever-evolving system and culture of dance schools in mind, meeting the current needs of the dance education field, while retaining the time proven qualities that are effective. Therefore, new products are continually introduced and current products are updated as new information and advances in education, movement science and dance medicine are discovered.
Read about Anneliese’s extensive training and 30 years of experience as a dance professional on the About Us page at www.abcfordance.com.
