The workshop will take place from 4:30–7:30 PM, on stage at the Renaissance Theatre, located at 138 Park Avenue West in Mansfield, Ohio.

The registration fee of $125 for the workshop has been covered for all participants through the generous support of the Ohio Arts Council and Charles P. Hahn, CFP, and the Key Bank Foundation.

Dance is not one thing. It is many. There are multiple ways to effectively use it in the classroom as an instructional approach depending on your learning objectives and placement within a unit of study. Focus 5 and Kennedy Center Teaching Artist, Harlan Brownlee, draws upon his 38 years of teaching experience to guide participants in a series of participatory movement-based structures designed to integrate into daily lesson plans and increase instructional effectiveness. Educators are invited to dress comfortably to best explore this toolbox of movement strategies and leave with the knowledge of when and why to use them in order to get your students moving through the curriculum!
