1st Symposium on Dance Pedagogies in the Arab Speaking Countries

In July 2010 in Bodrum, Turkey, 27 leading contemporary dance practitioners, researchers and cultural managers actively involved in teaching/learning contemporary dance in North Africa and the Arab Mashrek (both from the region and Europe) gathered for an interactive symposium. This week-long symposium offered possibilities for discussion, learning, reflection, research and networking to create together a sense of shared context.

This symposium promoted reflective practice amongst dance practitioners engaged in dance pedagogy (in the Arab Mashrek and North Africa). It was a moment to learn and collectively reflect on each one’s experience and knowledge in dance pedagogy related to dance as an artistic and theatrical form.
