NYSDEA day of dance.

Saturday May 12th

NYSDEA members are invited to participate in our first Day of Dance event. Participants will start the day at the New York Public Library for the Arts at Lincoln Center where we will be immersed in Robbins Archives relating to the Tribute to Robbins show program. After leaving the library participants will have the opportunity to visit local eateries with colleagues to grab lunch before seeing the 2pm Tribute to Robbins performance by the New York City Ballet. The cost for this event is $60.00 which includes the library & performance ticket (second ring seats). Educators in need of CTLE hours can register online for an additional $5.00 for 4 hours of CTLE and certificate of participation.

From the President

Dear NYSDEA Members

We started the new year bolting out of the gate. Our Annual conference on February 3rd & 4th, our upcoming Standards Workshop at NYU on Saturday, February 24th, our participation in dance/NYC Symposium on Sunday February 25th, sending representatives to Arts Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C. on March 12th and 13th, an upstate mini-conference on Saturday, April 14th, and a NYC Fundraiser on Saturday April 28th. The first quarter of the year is totally jam packed with opportunities for you to participate in connecting with other dance educators throughout the state.

In addition we just sent out a survey for all participants in the Annual Conference, and a Unified Ballot that you as a NYSDEA member need to vote on as we move forward into our next generation of board members.

If you received a survey about the Conference please fill it out. Your feedback is important to us as we plan for next year. Also don’t forget to vote on the Unified Ballot. Knowing that we have your confidence in the structural choices that the board makes allows us to move forward with initiatives and advocacy that is necessary to the continued development and growth of the organization.

Check back here as we solidify the details for the upstate mini-conference and or NYC Fundraiser. Details on how to register and participate in both events will be posted shortly.

All the best,
