Researchers are beginning to recognize what traditional cultures have long understood—to dance is to learn, but many teachers feel ill-equipped to incorporate movement into their classes. Rural teachers rarely have access to movement curricula, and available online content does not reflect the cultural contexts of rural and Indigenous students. This study describes a teacher in a rural Alaska Native village using Your Classroom Dance Teacher, a movement-based learning tool delivered via video.
