Community-Based Dance Education in Eugene, Oregon
MetadataShow full item record
While scholarly research addresses dance education in K-12 schools and higher education, there is little attention given to non-school programs such as parks and recreation dance classes, private dance studios, or community arts dance programs. Such programs often act as an entry point to dance education. In this research, I use an extensive literature review, document analysis, and indepth interviews to focus on four case study sites and their organizational structure, programs, personnel, goals, partnerships and community engagement. Through this research, I aim to describe and understand community-based dance education in Eugene, Oregon.
