We know teachers need to talk together to build a professional community that supports and inspires. One way Luna cultivates this kind of community is by hosting Practitioner Exchanges, monthly topic-based conversations facilitated by artist educators like you. They begin this week with a discussion on Creating Space for Child-centered Work (see below for details). It’s sliding scale or pay $25 to become a PL User and register for as many as you like!
Are you interested in a half-time position working in a dynamic dance education organization? Luna seeks to hire the right person to support our infrastructure during this exciting time of growth & development. This position is a perfect career-step for someone who eventually wishes to be an executive director or start their own nonprofit organization. See the full job notice here.
Join us with the whole family for dancing, activities, and connecting with the community at our Studio Lab Open House.
Meet Luna’s teaching faculty and learn about our fall classes. See the schedule of the morning here.

It can be challenging to talk about race. One way in is by listening to others – their perspectives, the questions they ask. Created by journalists of color, Code Switch is a weekly podcast that shares the voices of real people and the stories of how racial and inequity issues affect their lives. Several episodes explore race & equity in education, and this episode includes a conversation about our role as dance educators – check it out & keep the conversations going!
Thank you to all who joined live or via live feed to our Equity in Dance Panel February 23rd, and a big shout out to our generous & articulate speakers: Zaynah Islam, Latanya d. Tigner, Tammy Johnson, Gerald Casel, Judith Smith & Albirda Rose. Please stay tuned for our follow-up resources & transcription. You can still catch an excerpt of the conversation here.
