Dr. Ilana Morgan
Assistant Professor of Dance
Dr. Ilana Morgan, Ph.D. and BFA in Dance, is an Assistant Professor and Coordinator of the BA in Dance with Teacher Certification, and the MA in Dance with a Concentration in Education at Texas Woman’s University. In addition to teaching dance pedagogy and dance theory courses, she mentors and supervises students who are working towards Texas certification to teach dance in public schools for grades 6-12. She is also the Director of TWU’s Community Dance Center which provides low-cost high quality dance classes for local Denton community members. As an emerging scholar, her research investigates dance pedagogy, preparing and mentoring pre-service teachers, community-engagement practices, and internet/social media as a kinesthetic and pedagogical community experience. Her research pulls from overlapping theoretical areas such as feminist theories, education, community arts practices, posthumanism, dance studies, and popular culture. Her work, whether in performance or in written form, seeks to strengthen teaching and learning in the arts through community-engaged arts research practices as a contribution to the field of dance and the wellbeing of diverse community groups.
