The field of the research: Theory and Methodology of Choreographic Education.
The goal of the research: Establishing theoretical and curricular guidelines for valorization/cultivation of traditions through the art of dance in early childhood education.
The objectives of the research: analysis of concepts and theoretical approaches of valorization/cultivation of tradition through the art of dance in early childhood education; substantiation of theoretical guidelines of valorization/cultivation of tradition through the art of dance in early childhood education; development of the methodology for valorization of tradition through the art of dance in early childhood education; designing the dance teaching-learning curriculum based on tradition and the socio-cultural and educational context; experimental validation of the methodology for valorization/cultivation of tradition through the art of dance, as well as qualitative and quantitative analysis of experimental data.
The solved scientific issue lies in conceptualizing and developing the methodology for valorization of tradition through the art of dance in the socio-cultural and educational context accordingly, ensuring another level of dance education, and early child education/development.
The scientific novelty and originality of the study lies in: the theoretical substantiation of valorization of tradition in dance education of young children from the: socio-cultural, axiological and experimental perspectives; determination of strengths of the art of dance in order to put in value tradition in dance education of young children; substantiation of a methodology for valorization of tradition in dance education of young child focused on four dimensions: initial encoding (separation in units of meaning and their labeling), thematic extension, concentration of content, “translation” of the image derived from theoretical concepts and sensitized by ethical approaches.
The theoretical meaning of the study is revealed by: development of general theory of education through ethno-pedagogical interconnection (tradition) and dance education (art of dance), thus creating a new conceptual approach of dance teaching (socio-cultural dance); conceptualization of valorization of tradition in the dance education of children of early age in the socio-cultural, specific educational and experimental context; correlation of dance and tradition in an educational construct through: use of metaphors and rhymes from Hebrew scriptures; use of works of art focused on traditions; use of traditional music as sources of emotive inspiration; activity of teacher as bearer of values and experiences; development of the methodological framework for dance education of young children focused on valorization of traditions constituting a part of dance teaching (socio-cultural dance); theoretical and praxiological modeling of dance curriculum by putting in value the tradition and potential of “Midrash” dance.
The application value of the research consists in: the possibility of putting into practice the methodology of dance education of young children nationally; possibility and opportunity of implementing the dance teaching-learning curriculum; application of results in training of dance teachers; expansion of the relevant concept at the level of primary and general education.
Implementation of the scientific results: was experienced in the dance didactic and dance methodology lectures at Orot (2014-2015). The curriculum was implemented by teachers in training and graduate at HeMeD.
