WHO WE ARE
In 2001, the Dance Kinesiology Teachersʼ Group (DKT) was established by a group of educators across several universities in the United States, many of whom had worked directly with Sally Fitt, a dance science educator and author of the well-used text, “Dance Kinesiology.” The DKT group’s mission was to help educators share teaching strategies, educational resources and meet other educators integrating dance with science and somatics. Since 2001, the initial, core group of DKT’s has grown extensively and several conferences have been organized over the last several years in order to share teaching insights and resources.
As educators we are always looking to improve and gain new perspectives on teaching dance science and somatic practices. The resources provided are some of our best teaching practices and/or other ways to continue your education in the training adn education of healthy, smart dancers.
In addition to a biennial conference the group also gathers at the International Associaton of Dance Medicine and Science (IADMS) and Performing Arts Medicine Association (PAMA) annual conferences. These meetings are just some of the ways we share our current classroom practices and research in dance science and somatics.
