Dance Educators Conference – Hamilton, ON – SOLD OUT 2018
July 7 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$75
Register today for our July 7th, 2018 conference at Canada’s National Academy of Dance Education. Dance studio teachers, dance studio owners, early childhood educators, classroom teachers and all those aspiring to be (must be at least 18 years of age) are welcome.
Our conference is unlike any other. This conference isn’t about trying to sell you costumes, or name dropping choreographers who will be performing. This conference is a dance education experience. We discuss relevant topics in 21st century dance education, and dissect what it is we are doing as dance educators in our classrooms. We will provide you with thought provoking discussions on everything from safe dance practices to managing your dance classes. If you are passionate about being the best teacher you can be, and you care about making the most of your time with your dancers in the studio, then this conference is for you!
Conference participants will be greeted at 9:00AM with complimentary coffee and tea. The morning session will begin with a floor barre class followed by an improvisation exercise. The floor barre class is an excellent way to introduce technique and conditioning for dancers both in schools and at studios. Following the floor barre class, the morning sessions will engage both studio and classroom teachers through sessions inspired by the creative process, technique and classroom management. The afternoon session will begin with a class on mindfulness and the choreographic process. In the afternoon conference participants will have a choice of studio or classroom sessions to attend which will cover relevant topics in 21st century dance education. The day will conclude with a special guest speaker. Our mobile shop will also be set up so you can purchase all of our resources at the conference. You will leave the conference with a plethora of exercises, activities and strategies and skills, just enough to revive your engines and re-inspire you to be the best dance educator you can be. Dress comfortably, bring a laptop or tablet.
