My name is Tymothy Jaddock and I am recent graduate of the Master of Arts in Dance Education program at New York University. My undergraduate degree in Political Science is from the number 5 ranked University in Canada, the University of Alberta. Although my master’s degree focused on education within a movement setting, I wrote my thesis on the many intersection’s movement has with other educational areas such as math, science, social studies, English, literacy, and cultural studies. I am qualified to facilitate learning with children of all ages.
In the fall of 2020, I began my Master’s degree in Dance Education at New York University (NYU) in collaboration with American Ballet Theatre (ABT). This unique program focused on bridging technique and education to develop technically trained dancers. In compliance with national health guidelines the ABT National Training Curriculum is scaffolded to bridge stages of mental and physical development with ballet technique. Stages of cognitive and physical development are in direct correlation with success in all aspects of learning, and I seek to provide a wholistic approach to education at all times.
While in this program I was an intern at the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School at American Ballet Theatre. I worked with leaders in classical dance and dance education to preparing the next generation of professional ballet dancers in the United States. This training environment is one that embodies top-tier ballet training and dance education, training not only the body, but the whole person.
In my course work at NYU I was tasked with creating lesson plans, syllabi, and curricula that were in compliance with the Department of Education and New York State Standards. I am familiar with learning outcomes and always seek to make learning an enjoyable experience.
