Welcome to ACDA West Conference 2019 The Art of Moving!  Be open to new friends, new ideas, new experiences. Enjoy!

ACDA recognizes that Art can provoke; therefore, during the course of the conference, participants are empowered to remove themselves from conference activities.

To All Conference Participants:
Just a reminder...The adjudication process is structured to ensure that feedback and the selection process is as objective as possible.

Adjudicators do not know the names of schools or choreographers presenting work in the adjudication concerts. In order to keep the integrity of this ACDA policy and process in tact through the adjudicators’ final decision, it is necessary to ask all conference participants to avoid conversation with adjudicators about the adjudicated dances, the adjudication process, or their comments during the feedback sessionIn addition, please do not discuss your school’s programs or your own work with the adjudicators. Your full cooperation is being requested for the enjoyment of all conference participants, including the adjudicators!

Thank you in advance!

Limited Capacity seats available

This dance class uses the somatic movement principles of Bartenieff to get us moving. We will start on the floor in the X and developmentally progress to standing and moving through space. I am interested in the forces of gravity and how they play with us and how we play with them in return. I am interested in how dancing moves us both physically and emotionally to find our power to change and transform in the moment with movement. I am energized by community and the uniqueness of each person in the room. Come dance with other teachers in a judgement-free space!
