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 filling up

Class is built on the principle of shaping an informed and expressive body that is engaged in multidirectional space with strength, fluidity and clarity.  Class begins with a warm-up that focuses on skeletal alignment, strength and stretch of muscles, joint articulation and isolations.  Center floor work and dynamic phrases increase movement range, and finally, progressions across the floor develop elevation and rhythmic abilities.  Performance skills are stressed and inner expression encouraged.
