Since 2000, Luna’s nationally acclaimed Summer Institute has annually offered the most extensive individualized Professional Learning for dance teaching professionals.
A yearlong experience, the SI includes a seven-day summer intensive, a midyear reunion session, individualized coaching, and a final Gallery Walk. This program is offered at no cost to 12 individuals through a competitive application process.
Summer Institute alumni have the opportunity to dive into new levels of responsibility, collegiality, mentoring, program design and more.
Luna coaches work with each participant individually throughout the year, incorporating emergent common themes into a 4-day seminar. This program requires completion of DIDC-B and is offered every 2-3 years.

Social justice workers, early education teachers, therapists, dance teachers and parents study attachment and play theories, neuroscience and early movement patterns and explore how to create engaging dance curriculum to build trust and connection.
