NEW! The Dance Teachers Forum
The Dance Teacher Forum was created to provide a base where dance teachers can freely discuss teaching ideas, psychology, dance medicine, and current and evolving issues (e.g. inclusion, diversity, and sustainability). Teaching dance can sometimes be very lonely and you feel like you are alone in your school or freelance work, BUT we can build a community to discuss topics that are relevant to your career.
