Feedback & feedforward – Caroline D’Haese

Dancing is showing yourself, often also being appraised. At this moment a lot of discussions are ongoing about whether or not to give scores, about self-evaluation and ways in which to give feedback. The dance teacher increasingly is a mentor and moderator of a creative process rather than an omniscient guru. This helps to ensure a new generation of creatives who handle dance in a discerning and self-aware manner. As a teacher, how can you communicate in as motivating a way as possible to inspire your students to continue their search and to make their own choices? How can you stimulate students not to think in terms of right or wrong, and guide their artistical development constructively?

Caroline uses the observation and feedback methods of Anna Halprin and the Das Arts Research School as a basis, as well as pedagogic principles.

Since finishing her studies at The London Contemporary Dance School, The California Institute of the Arts and the Belgian Higher Institute for Dance, Caroline D’Haese has created her own choreographic work. For some five years she has performed with Reckless Sleepers. Apart from that, she cooperates with artists from different disciplines for and with various target groups. She became a lecturer at, among others, the Royal Conservatoire in Antwerp in 2005, and helped to develop the Dance Master programme. In recent years, together with Natalie Gordon, she has been researching the role of the use of language in dance education as well as evaluation processes. At this moment, Caroline is shaping the workspace p l a y g r o u n d s, where residencies, concerts, training and workshops take place in rural Lede.
