Are you a practicing dance teaching artist or classroom teacher ready for a fresh creative spark and time to develop your craft? Are you hungry for a collegial community that will help push you to the next level of your practice?
Apply to Luna’s Summer Institute (SI)! Now in its 20th year, the SI is a nationally-acclaimed professional development experience that brings together 6 teaching artists & 6 classroom practitioners to activate & inspire individual & collective imaginations.
A year-long comprehensive experience, the SI includes a week of intensive workshops, follow-up professional development, mentorship & coaching, and collegial support, all focused on the art of teaching dance.
“I was given permission – even encouragement – to experiment and make mistakes. To discover who I am as a dance artist and teacher. To follow my own curiosity versus someone else’s idea of what good dance teaching is.”
– Summer Institute alum
SI alumni have distinguished themselves as innovative teachers & advocates for dance education, and have gone on to forge new dance programs, step into leadership, and create change.
