My work centers around school based experiences for teachers and students in the area of dance and physical education. Giving voice to students and teachers experiences provides insight into the challenges of teaching dance in an educational environment, where the cultural focus on movement programs often embraces the sports paradigm. Enhancing the understanding of dance pedagogy that facilitates positive student and teacher experiences in dance education has been the primary impetus for this research. Dance as a viable and alternative form of physical activity must be understood from the cultural context of the students. Most recently, I have studied the cultural epistemology of Indigenous people, to learn more about the relevance of their knowledge in relation to curriculum and pedagogy and how we can enhance learning for all students through responsive curriculum.
