Construction and Creative Movement: A Manifesto (plenary talk/workshop)
Tuesday, August 17th, 2010
Presenters: Andee Rubin (TERC), David Capps, Hunter College; Liz Bradley, University of Colorado

The lens of constructionism has traditionally been focused on the learning of topics such as mathematics, science, and computation. Of the arts, only music has played a significant role in the development of constructionist ideas. In this paper, we present a manifesto based on our belief that dance pedagogy can both exemplify and expand the current views of constructionism, and we contend that choreography and creative movement improvisation can be viewed as constructionist pursuits.
