CDEA Whatever You Need is simply an opportunity for dance educators in all sectors to come together to take a master class hosted by a guest artist. The only agenda is the dance educator gets "whatever they need" out of the session. Those needs can vary from wanting to move in a class taught by someone else or to get ideas to improve practice or just a need to get together with other people who teach dance. It is a session for dance educators, by dance educators and with dance educators. Whatever You Need is held in regional locations around the state. Come get whatever you need.
