Today’s giveaway is sponsored by Dance in a Box. Dance in a Box provides tools for teachers to aid in teaching hip hop and rhythm to kids age 3-12, including interactive choreography kits and learning music. Creator, Tricia Gomez is giving away her new 1-2-3 Dance interactive hip hop choreography kit, containing 50 mix-and-match hip hop step cards and much more, to two DA readers.
Back then, hip hop wasn’t about derogatory comments, threats, and how much money you made. It was about family and belonging. It was about taking your world and making sense of it…through dance (b-boying), through music (DJing), through art (graffiti), through words (MCing). THAT is where your philosophy needs to come from.
Instead of actual snapshots I’m sharing some of the thoughts and impressions I picked up along the yellow brick road. I hope you’ll use, think about, or act upon these little nuggets from the Dance Teacher Summit. I had a great time collecting them for you.
