July 17 – 23: Dunham Teacher Certification Workshop
July 25 – July 29: Dunham Technique Intensive
The Institute for Dunham Technique Certification is dedicated to perpetuating the legacy of dancer/choreographer/anthropologist Katherine Dunham. (1909-2006) The Institute maintains a professional standard for the teaching of Dunham Technique, and creates a worldwide network of professional Dunham instructors who actively maintain current knowledge and practice of the Dunham Technique.
Once on the path to certification, the candidate must participate in Dunham Technique Certification Workshops. These workshops are for the development, training, and testing of candidates for certification, however, they are also open to the general public, attending in order to learn more about Katherine Dunham and the Dunham Technique. This mixed-group approach allows the candidate to have the opportunity to teach in a real class situation, with varied age levels, while offering the public the opportunity to study with exceptional Master Teachers, Certified Instructors, and candidates for certification. As a part of the Workshop, classes are offered in Dunham Technique, Dunham History and Philosophy, and Pedagogy.
