Professional Development for Dance Teachers

July 5-9, 2021

Refine your teaching practices in a supportive community of dance educators!

A week long opportunity for dance teachers to immerse themselves amongst fellow educators, share best practices, and further their teaching artistry. All educators from seasoned faculty to new teachers, community dance practitioners, dance education undergraduates/graduates, dance studio owners, and K-12 teachers, are welcome.


Professional Development will be offered in-person and virtually. Registration is limited for both options. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only residents of the tri-state area (New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut) are permitted to attend the in-person program. Students outside of the tri-state area may not attend the in-person program. The virtual program is open to students in any location. Ballet Hispánico is unable to provide housing for those participating in the in-person program.
