Dance Partnering Basics: Practical Skills and Inclusive Pedagogy With HKPropel Access presents easy-to-implement, technique-based partnering instruction for dancers of all ages. The exercises and techniques, which are broken down into parts and presented in a skill progression, from beginner to advanced, can be applied to a variety of dance forms. The book offers a plethora of tools to help dance educators in providing expert partnering instruction:
  • 18 illustrated exercises that teach techniques, mechanics, and individual partnered skills; each exercise includes additional variations and explorations
  • Tips for developing a partnering component and integrating it into an existing dance program or curriculum
  • Related online materials delivered via HKPropel, including over 40 video clips demonstrating partnering exercises, vocabulary, questions for discussion and reflection, and assessments and rubrics to help assess student progress

    Inclusive, Nongendered Approach
    The text uses an inclusive, nongendered approach to dance partnering, as opposed to the traditional male and female roles. Instead of using man/woman labels in the instructions, author Brandon Whited uses terminology such as partner A/partner B, leader/follower, and supported partner/supportive partner. This approach gives a broad appeal to dance partnering.
    Book Contents
    Dance Partnering Basics is organized around the foundational elements of dance—time, weight, energy and flow, and space. Chapter 1 provides a concise history and explanation of dance partnering forms and considers the broad implications for the practice as a vital component of dance education and training. Chapter 2 focuses on class planning, course development, foundational concepts, and teaching techniques. It also offers foundational skills and exercises. Chapter 3 delves into the body as an instrument, discussing biomechanics, safety, cross-training, nutrition, wellness, and self-care. It also offers more advanced skills, building off of those offered in the previous chapter. In chapter 4, readers explore the relationship between partnership and creativity, digging into tactics, exercises, and choreographic prompts that can help unlock creativity. It contains the exercises with the most advanced skills and partnership principles. And finally, chapter 5 outlines dance education philosophies, which include establishing a safe space, a supportive environment, and a community within the classroom and beyond.
    Dance Partnering Basics is a highly practical resource for dance educators and teachers across all levels, from K-12 to higher education as well as private studios. It is an ideal text to teach partnering, regardless of the students' ages, their skill level, or the dance genre. With its unique inclusive approach, this book is a welcome and much-needed addition to the dance field.
