Brain-Compatible Dance Education (BCDE), developed by Anne Green Gilbert and the Creative Dance Center, is a nationally and internationally recognized teaching methodology.
BCDE is a structured methodology for teaching dance using a lesson plan and strategies that create an environment in which the brain is ready, willing, and able to learn. This holistic approach allows students the opportunity to become skilled dancers, critical thinkers, innovative creators, successful collaborators, and respectful responders.
