Attention all drama and dance educators, artists and academics! Registration for our 47th annual conference Claiming our Voices, is now live! The vision of the conference is to celebrate, inspire and learn about the diverse voices that make up our drama and dance community. We have artists, educators and academics from diverse backgrounds sharing their dance and drama work around equity issues, arts advocacy, teacher and student wellness and the lenses which shape understanding
One of the many strengths of dance and drama is the potential to allow students to explore a variety of perspectives and embody new ideas and concepts. As drama and dance educators we need to provide students with opportunities to experiment with various roles, use drama and dance as a vehicle to explore a variety of perspectives, and claim their voice through the roles
they embody and the movements they create. We, as educators, must also examine our own voices. Where do we fit in in the landscape of Arts advocacy? How can we include a variety of perspectives, cultures, identities and experiences in our classrooms? What part do we play in fostering student creativity? Join us at the CODE conference as we work together to Claim our Voices!
