Does anyone have a modern dance syllabus or vocabulary list that they would be willing to share? I teach dance in the middle school and I am starting a modern dance unit. I have a syllabus that I use that I would be willing to share as well. Thanks.

I teach modern now for 3 now. I don't have a syllabus.
I do make a plan for my lessons (year by year, per group). What do I want them to learn, how fast and in what way.
Luckily I have a SO who helps me.

I have 2 books with exercises and vocabulary in it.
- Martha Graham: the evolution of her dance theory and training.
at the end is short chapter with exercises.
- The illustraded dance technique of José Limon.
exercises with pictures.

I would be interested in the syllabus you have.

Take care, Merle
