The Institute for Dunham Technique Certification is dedicated to perpetuating the legacy of dancer/choreographer/anthropologist Katherine Dunham. (1909-2006) The Institute maintains a professional standard for the teaching of Dunham Technique, and creates a worldwide network of professional Dunham instructors who actively maintain current knowledge and practice of Dunham Technique.
Once on the path to certification, the candidate must participate in Dunham Technique Certification Workshops. These workshops are for the development,
training, and testing of candidates for certification, however they are also
open to the general public, attending in order to learn more about Katherine
Dunham and the Dunham Technique. This mixed-group approach allows the candidate
to have the opportunity to teach in a real class situation, with varied age
levels, while offering the public the opportunity to study with exceptional
Master Teachers, Certified Instructors, and candidates for certification. As a
part of the Workshop classes are offered in Dunham Technique, Dunham History and
Philosophy, and Pedagogy.
