Regardless of which setting we teach in or where we are in our careers, dance teachers are constantly guiding, managing, developing, advocating, directing, creating, and communicating. We set the tone for our classes; we build relationships with students, parents, and administrators; we overcome obstacles for the sake of our programs; and we advocate for dance and demonstrate its tremendous impact through our teaching. This year in Denver we come together to explore and embrace our impact as leaders. Join us as we raise respect for the field of dance education and make the implicit explicit. If you are a dance teacher, you are a leader.
