Join us for a weekend of illuminating conversations surrounding equity in dance education. We will be focusing on how to make our programs more accessible and inclusive to dancers from every walk of life, along with refreshing classroom basics. This year, in addition to in-depth workshops with leading teaching artists in our state, we are excited to be adding a facilitated panel discussion with educators, artists, and other community members to our line up.
