Dancing the “Day Of Atonement”. The Use Of Visual Texts for Teaching Choreographic Principles and Imparting Jewish Values
This paper is part of a larger study that set out to explore the pedagogical tools used by religious teachers in order to convey – through dance – traditional messages which cultivate a sense of communal belonging and shape the identity of the student, thereby bridging the tension between dance and the way it is perceived by traditional religious Judaism. I will analyze one class in which the teacher used visual art to weave choreographic principles into the learning of tradition and how the visual text serves as a cultural message around which the teacher structures a dance piece, simultaneously creating and conveying dance content knowledge and knowledge of the tradition.
