July 1, 2024

We’re only 4 weeks away from our biggest event of the season—the 2024 Dance Teacher Live Workshops & Awards—taking place on Thursday, August 1, from 9 am–3 pm EDT, at The Ailey Studios in New York City.

Be a part of innovative, interactive workshops and stimulating discussions with other educators in the field, plus our beloved Dance Teacher Awards ceremony, this year honoring Terese Capucilli, Dr. Diane Duggan, Jackie “Miss Funk” Lopez-Foaad & Leigh “Breeze-Lee” Foaad of Versa-Style Street Dance Company, Dre Torres, and our Awardees of Distinction, Ronald K. Brown and Arcell Cabuag

In addition to bringing you in-depth profiles of our incredible awardees this month, we’re excited to offer you a range of new, exclusive content. 

For starters, we’re rounding up the latest dance titles that can make the perfect beach or travel read this summer. Plus, with the Olympic debut of breaking later this season, your dance students are sure to be inspired by the gravity-defying spin moves they’ll see onscreen. But whether you’re teaching breaking or another style of dance that utilizes suspension, you’ll find expert advice on how to keep both the physical and mental safety of your students in mind in our Technique & Artistry column.

We’ll also be investigating the grading system in dance and discussing the benefits that come with, well, ungrading. 

And later this month, Bailey Randolph tells us how she uses music to get her K–12 dance students excited; Dee Tomasetta, who’s currently making her debut in The Who’s Tommy on Broadway, shares her advice for aspiring associate choreographers; Utah-based Jillana Hess Webb talks about creating a lasting studio legacy; and our beloved writer Haley Hilton pays heartfelt tribute to all the teachers that have paved the way for her dance career in our What My Teacher Taught Me column.

With excitement,
Reanne Rodrigues
