Dr. Mila Parrish
UNCG Director of Dance Education
Designed for the dance educator interested in exploring the tools of technology and new media, Summer Dancing into New Media covers a broad spectrum of methods and applications. No previous experience with technology is necessary. This five-day intensive hands-on course looks at constructivist methods and strategies for bridging new media technology and dance education. Through new approaches participants will develop skills and acquire resources to build a knowledge base for integrated dance technology in their classrooms. Participants will access information and resources, redefining and transforming the way we teach and learn about dance. Course projects are designed to investigate creative processes, to consider ways of integrating media into the dance curriculum and to explore new approaches to teaching and learning dance with technology. We will address video communication tools; smartphones and other digital devices in the studio, digital imaging, video manipulation and editing; audio and sound editing; interactive and new media resources. In order to support the physical needs of participants, daily movement classes will be integrated into the course.
Integrated course content includes: Constructivist technology instruction; Video communication tools; Digital imaging, manipulation and editing; Audio editing; interactive and new media resources. In order to support the physical needs of participants, daily movement classes will be integrated into the course. Continuing education credits available.

- Some surface parking lots, which offer free parking, may be available. Parking in one of these lots requires a longer walk to the Coleman Building.
- The simplest solution is to use the Walker Parking Deck, located across from the Coleman Building (the dance building). It is located at 1360 Walker Street and is paid parking: under 30 minutes/free, $2/first hour, $1/additional hours, up to $7 max.
