Abstract [en]

I am very pleased to invite you all to the first conference in Scandinavia on "Contemporary Dance Didactics: Explorations in Theory and Practice" - a close encounters conference with lecture demonstrations, round table discus­sions and paper presentations. The purpose of the conference is to introduce and share research, discuss, demonstrate and try different forms of dance didactics with participants from Sweden and intemationally. Furthermore to illuminate how dance didactics have developed and how this field of teaching and leaming can grow. There has been a lot of interest and many dance scholars, dance teachers and dance researchers have sent in their contributions in order to participate with their re­search, development work and best practices. As the participants represent both national and intemational dance environments, the knowledge and experience shared will highlight current views and key aspects of the development of dance didactics from an intemational perspective. The quality of dance teaching is the key to unlock the full potential of stu­dents at all levels, equipping them with necessary knowledge and skills for a future career. So far, the effort to improve the quality of dance teaching on a larger scale has been insufficient in many countries. My hope is that this con­ference will illuminate this issue and contribute to greater focus on teaching the art of dance and have an impact on the future dance world. The conference provides the opportunity to discuss and share how to meet the needs of a diverse student body and how we may provide skills necessary for a democratic leaming environment. It is very important to highlight the power of communication and cooperation, the power of i magi nation and to de­velop creativity. These are crucial elements that help the students excel along­side their passion. We have to find ways to increase our ability to respond creatively to challenges - this is the key to sustainability! I and all of us involved in facilitating this conference would like to warmly welcome you and we do hope that you will be stimulated, challenged, discover future opportun i­ties and create new networks. My vision is that research in dance didactics will develop and continues to explore, understand and critically analyze dance education. I know our confer­ence will add to a tradition of lifelong leaming, and I sincerely hope we will soon be able to meet again in new conferences all over the world!
