UDEO Spring Conference

by ashleyandersondances

UDEO just completed a (very snowy!) High School Festival with an enormous offering of classes, adjudication sessions and performance opportunities. They are now headed toward the Spring 2013 conference on Saturday March 2nd at UVU.

Many dance educators are also working artists in the Salt Lake community: Danell Hathaway teaches full time at Olympus while directing Movement Forum, you can see choreography by Ashley Mott in the upcoming MicroDance at the Rose but she also teaches at Westminster and SLCC, Kori Wakamatsu & Kate Monson both teach at BYU and UVU (respectively) but have been sharing their creative work through venues like Provo Sites, the crew at RawMoves teaches in various studio and school settings, RW alum Ai Fujii teaches for Tanner and RW Studio Series while still making her own work.  This is just a small cross section of the way working artists overlap with dance education in a K-12 and higher education setting — in fact, most of us are freelance artists and educators at some point.

UDEO helps to share resources among educators. This year conference presenters include Stephen Brown, Bill Evans, the BYU Kinnect Company and many of the people mentioned above. Check out the details to register here: http://www.udeo.org/index.php?id=conferences/spring2013
