Abstract and Keywords

This part presents views of dance across a broad spectrum of educational settings, from mainstream schooling to higher education, from working with children with learning and behavioural difficulties to working with dance and movement educators and therapists. It raises matters concerning policy making and both formal and informal curriculum in different cultural contexts and considers how the provision of dance can enhance learning through the encouragement of a positive ethos in schools. The pedagogy underpinning dance provision in schools is addressed with regard to the roles of dance artists in school-based education. These diverse perspectives stem from various locations across the globe with the concept of wellbeing as a catalyst for successful learning being the common thread binding them.
