Dance is included as one of five subjects within the new Australian National Arts Curriculum. Learning in the Arts in general is based on collaborative, creative, inquiry-based processes. In contrast, in recent years in Queensland, Australia, there has been a move away from student-centred, cooperative or inquiry-based learning and towards teacher-centred, direct-instruction and explicit teaching. In my experience, as a researcher and dance educator, I have encountered a variety of pedagogies being used to teach dance. This paper considers the question "Which pedagogic framework best supports teachers to implement dance in their classrooms?"
