Participants will explore each of the four dance elements (body, energy, space, and time) and use these to manipulate the BrainDance, which is a brain-centered movement progression used to focus, direct, and expand attention and interdisciplinary learning in the classroom.  Participants will specifically use the elements and the founding tenets of the BrainDance to create movement to accompany the instruction of "high frequency words" and basic math equations in the classroom.  Curricular and non-curricular movement activities, as well as classroom management strategies for making interdisciplinary dance instruction immediately successful, will be shared as well as a rubric that can be used to formatively and summatively assess independent teaching in this type of instruction.
