It’s not ability that’s the limiting factor for an inclusive community - it’s opportunity. Through the project Limitless, I looked at pedagogical practices implemented during the creation of three dance pieces, which were recorded, edited, and distributed on social media. Through my project and its analysis and accompanying research I will examine ‘what pedagogical approach is best practice with inclusive dance?’ Through combining an overview of relevant literature with reflections on personal experiences in the project, I will examine the best practice teaching methods and the dancers most preferred learning models within inclusive dance. This document is meant to provide an insight into what are effective teaching and learning strategies in inclusive dance. Some refer to this project as advocacy art or therapeutic art and they wouldn’t be wrong, those are both bi-products of this project, however, they were not the focus. This was a study in dance and teaching.
