Identity is a theme explored throughout dance education. However, themes of gender identity, sexuality, and other topics relating to the LGBTQIA+ community are not always addressed. When designing an equitable, diverse, and inclusive curriculum and classroom environment, it is imperative to consider the needs and perspectives of the LGBTQIA+ community. As an art form that provides a platform for self expression, how can dance educators make sure all students' identities are seen and celebrated? Share your ideas, methodology, and discoveries with Dance Educators by submitting your proposal for the 2023 NYSDEA Winter Conference!
