2020 CSU East Bay Save the Date Invitation.jpg

INSPIRE, CREATE, REFLECT: THE POWER OF PEDAGOGY is the California Dance Education Association’s 2020 statewide conference held at California State University, East Bay, February 1- 2, 2020. This year’s theme focuses our attention on dance advocacy and how we as dance educators advocate for dance for all children at our schools, in our communities and statewide. How do dance teachers create work to speak to the value of dance education in our state? How do our pedagogical habits undergo refinements to further advance dance education progress and create a welcoming, inclusive environments in our unique classrooms, studios and communities? How do dance teachers enlighten the public about the impact of dance education on individuals, families, audiences, communities and society?
