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.
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 4.5-6.
Creating Space for Dance
Join Oakland public school teacher Christine Atkins as she addresses these common concerns: I want to dance with my students, but how can I find time in the busy school day? And where would I even do it? She’ll share how she’s brought dance to her school by integrating movement into all her classes, creating a physical space for dance, advocating to administration, and investigating how dance can support her goals for her students. Bring your own questions, ideas, curiosity and expertise to this community-building conversation.
