Luana

Coordinator, Physical Education Department & Dance

B.A., College of Saint Teresa; M.A., Mills College, Oakland

Luana has taught at CCSF since 1989.

She has trained with the Martha Graham Studio and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre studio.

In her own words: "Each student has a brilliance, a genius so to speak, and I encourage the student to apply his/her own brand of intelligence to the subject I am teaching (history, choreography, dance technique, or performance). Therefore I teach to the "internal teacher" which resides inside the student. I find students understand quicker, retain information longer and can aptly apply the information in a multiplicity of situations. Additionally, I am a systems theorist, so I believe in an interconnectedness of all subjects which demands from me multidimensional teaching and contextual presentation. Finally, each class is a learning experience for me because the students are teaching me how to teach them - it's very exciting! At the beginning of each semester I say to the students that ALL of us should be transformed in some way (physically, intellectually, emotionally, or spiritually) BECAUSE of the experiences created in my classes."

She is on the board of directors of several arts education organizations and involved in the mentorship program at Mills College. Luana also is a conference lecturer on the subjects: "Using the Arts in K-12 Education", "The African American Aesthetic in Education", "Teaching the Three R's Through Dance".

Luana is a member of the California Dance Educators Association and the National research group- subject: African American aesthetic
