Practitioner Exchanges create time and space for peer educators to explore issues of practice. Get inspired! Try out new ideas or perspectives! Ask for help with your challenges. Each month centers on a different topic. This year, Practitioner Exchanges are paired with workshop offerings as an opportunity to integrate and revisit information throughout the year. Practitioner Exchanges are soft facilitated by Summer Institute alumni and veteran dance teachers experienced in the topic addressed. Come to ONE, come to ALL. No prerequisite.
When taken in conjunction with a half-day workshop, PD hours total 4.5.
Held the 2nd Tuesday of the month, 4:30-6pm. RSVP. $15-40 sliding scale. Free of charge for registered Professional Learning Users (those who have paid the annual $25 fee).

Luna’s workshops, Practitioner Exchanges, and activities are designed for continued study that can deepen over the year, and over your career. This year many of our offerings are aligned with particular themes, and you can follow their threads from an initial course to a follow-up workshop to a Practitioner Exchange, where you can share successes and challenges, and brainstorm new ideas.
Luna’s Foundations Series of DIDC-A, DIDC-B, Curricular Progressions and Reflective Practice can be applied to each of these thematic threads.
