  • Practitioner Exchanges – monthly

    From: $15.00

    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, and collectively generate new ideas and solution. Each Exchange centers on a different topic. This year, Practitioner Exchanges are held online via Zoom, and will investigate different questions in regards to teaching dance from a distance. Practitioner Exchanges are facilitated by Summer Institute alumni. Come to ONE, come to ALL. No prerequisite.

    Practitioner Exchanges are included in the cost of workshops as follow-up discussions. When taken in conjunction with a half-day workshop, PD hours total 4.5-7. Explore descriptions here.
