Join Ann Biddle (Director of DEL at Jacob’s Pillow), Felice Santorelli (DEL Facilitator), and Guest Artist Melanie George in this online workshop series highlighting resources from the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Interactive site. Re-envision dance history as embodied inquiry using the extensive video and multimedia resources of the Jacob’s Pillow Archives. DELving into Dance History is an ongoing series and is designed for K-12 dance educators and college dance history enthusiasts to enhance remote and in-person teaching. 

Guest Artist Melanie George, Jacob’s Pillow Scholar in Residence, will share her extensive expertise in culturally responsive dance history and engage participants to apply new perspectives and voices to their pedagogical and artistic practice and “deconstruct traditional hierarchies in dance.” Pulling from the extensive resources on the Pillow interactive site, participants will DELve into Dance History and gain new skills and understanding to broaden the teaching of dance history in a more inclusive, accessible, and equitable manner.
