Dance Fever

Partners for Arts Education is funding the Dancewave Learning to Teach Series and it looks like a terrific professional development opportunity for Teaching Artists.

Textured Journeys: Crafting Creative Movement Lessons for Very Young Artists, a 3-part seminar led by dance educator Barbara Bashaw, is designed to help individuals learn how to craft Creative Movement lessons for 3-9 year-olds.

The seminar runs on April 19, April 26th and May 3rd from 10:00 AM to 1:30 PM. It costs $125, so you may have to roll some change or, better yet, ask your employer if they'll chip in.

I know it's the depression, but I still think employers should be looking for ways to help their teaching artists afford the cost of workshops like these.

Professional Development may be expensive, but bad teaching is forever.
