Abstract [en]

The aim of my thesis is to attempt formulating methods and strategies functioning as options to broaden

and develop the knowledge concerning the relationship between music and dance to musicians

specialized in playing to dance classes. As a dance pedagogue I also try to find ways of developing my

cooperation with musicians. Teaching jazz dance, the genre used in this essay, I function in different

pedagogical roles to musicians who accompany dance students. Throughout my study I analyze the

interviews made with my participants before, during and after my lessons. In my attempts to formulate

these methods and strategies, different types of pedagogies are used e.g. learning by doing -methodology

together with dynamic pedagogy.

Be ing inspired by refle xiv ity, and using it as a tool in my analy zing process, I interpret my partic ipants’

statements. Especially the final interview discloses that the participants show a broaden understanding

for movements and the connection between movement and music. Their statements show that they can

feel the movements, regardless of their dancing the movements or not and this helps them in providing

music suitable for the specific movements. In order to develop cooperation with musicians, my stu dy

shows that teamwork is the tool that helps most.
