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!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

By Nomination Only:
In this class, participants will work together to make a dance by the end of the session. Dancers will all generate movement material and assemble a series of short studies. Then the material will be shaped into a single work with Keefe’s guidance. Participants will be expected to contribute choreographic suggestions, take risks as dancers, and participate fully as performers. The goal of the class is to consider how speedy decision-making can generate numerous choreographic possibilities. Limited to 24 dancers, all skill levels welcome.
