Series IV:

Teaching Materials
Physical Description:
Contents: The teaching materials in the Collection consist of typewritten and handwritten manuscripts that describe the courses, classes, and dance technique offered primarily through Dance Theater. They are arranged by subject in the following order: Course Descriptions/Outlines, Lecture Demonstrations, Technique Descriptions, Lesson Plans and Course Outlines, and Labanotation of Technique. The course descriptions, developed by Horton and others, summarize the goals, objectives, and material covered in classes on dance technique (multiple levels), art history, theater practice, and so forth. The materials on lecture demonstrations such as "Introduction to the Dance" include Horton's notes and outlines of the programs he presented to educate the public on dance and his technique. The teaching materials also include lesson plans, course outlines, and technique descriptions (including Labanotation) by Carmen de Lavallade and other Horton disciples.
