Dance Talks: Dance Education Symposium

Thu 6 Jul 2017
18:00 - 19:00
Free - But please RSVP to

Passionate about dance being part of every child's school week? Join us to hear about programmes currently being delivered in schools, the incredible impacts dance has on these young people and to look at the next steps for integrating dance into classrooms in schools throughout Ireland.

As part of Irish Youth Dance Festival, a Dance Education Symposium will take place featuring a panel of dance education specialists including Toni Bravo (US) and Yvonne Young (Scotland). This event is in partnership with IYDF, Dublin Youth Dance Company and Dance Ireland.

This talk is directly aimed at dance teachers at all levels, those teaching at primary and secondary school level, where students now have grown up entirely or almost entirely in the 21st century internet and smartphone culture.  This talk may also be of interest to school teachers at both primary and secondary school level.

A fix of inspiration and creative conversation!  Dance Talks capture existing knowledge and create new learning by discussing dance as it relates to other concepts and art forms, while providing a space to make connections with like-minded people.  

Free and open to all, the more diverse the audience the better the conversation, so come and join the discussion and take action.
