  • 2017 CDEA Conference, Irvine, CA, January 28-29, 2017

    2017 CDEA Conference, Irvine, CA, January 28-29, 2017

    "The conference began with time for networking. As the mingling began, I realized that my two colleagues and I were the only ones representing elementary dance education and had more than one school location. I quickly discovered that what is happening in LAUSD isn’t happening anywhere else." - Denise Gonzalez, Elementary Dance Teacher/Peer Coach

    Advanced Space Harmony Conference, New York, New York, December 3-4, 2016

    "Over the course of two days, we explored fascinating forms such as mixed 7-rings, tranverse and peripheral 5-rings. All in all it was a great workshop! I learned so many new strategies and concepts that I was sure would interest my students and take them to a higher understanding of dance movement." - Jocelyn Lofton, Dance Teacher, Bancroft MS Performing Arts Magnet

    2016 NDEO, Washington DC, October 6-10, 2016

    "Our own Shana Habel presented an excellent workshop on dance inspiration. Some of the questions we discussed were: Where do dancers get their ideas? How does the inspiration process affect the product? In groups of 5-7 we took a look at some haiku for dance inspiration. I don’t know if it was the source material (excellent choice of haiku?) or Shana’s inspirational guidance but the dances that emerged from this class were some of the most intricate I had seen in any of the workshops." - Michael Ryther, Elementary Arts Integration Teacher, Creative Network

    2015 National Dance Education Organization (NDEO) Conference, Phoenix, AZ, October 7-11, 2015

    "The theme of the conference was “Focus on Dance Education: Engaging in the Artistic Processes: Creating, Performing, Responding, Connecting.” We were also very lucky to meet and collaborate with the International Guild of Musicians in Dance (IGMID) at the conference. It’s always a treat to share with musicians whose focus is dance." - Shana Habel, K-12 Dance Adviser
