Conflict at school drops when students take the lead : CIFAR

Danzkool's insight:
"CONFLICT AT SCHOOL DROPS WHEN STUDENTS TAKE THE LEAD" (A study by the Cdn Institute For Advanced Research)

My thoughts: When conflicts happen, it's those who are most involved who must step up and lead the way to solutions. In the case of conflicts involving students at school, the answer may not be to wield the 'big stick', but instead to empower a few influential or thoughtful ones. That's the message coming out this study.

How is it relevant to DARE-2-Dance, and arts enrichment in general? Consider 'empathy' and 'personal responsibility' -- these are outcomes integral to (dance) arts enrichment.

Having taught in some "pretty tough" schools, I've either seen firsthand, or heard stories about, greatly improved social and emotional behaviour exhibited by a "problem" child or youth after she/he has struggled, while working in physical contact with another classmate, to acquire the skills needed for their class to succeed.

Danzkool's insight:

What a great idea! I've always wanted to fill vacant spaces (at YVR, Oakridge Mall, Metrotown, the Courthouse, etc) with music & dancing spectacles. What say we teach kids at every school how to Jive or Salsa, then take them to the nearest mall or public space to do some dancing?

Danzkool's insight:

A bit of nostalgia for me: Watching these youngsters perform their Ice Dancing program reminds me of the time I spent coaching Ice Dancers at "Burnaby 8-Rinks" (outside Vancouver). The flow & speed that fine skaters must master take dance technique, rhythm & choreography into a whole new realm. I really enjoyed my time with them. Thanks, June.

Danzkool's insight:

When music and dancing meet. I found this little excerpt from "Dancing With The Stars" to be both inspirational (young people making and expressing the music) and entertaining. Thanks to the producers for putting them on camera for all to see.
