Dear Dance History Teachers Discussion Group,
The DHTDG will be meeting at the upcoming Dance Studies Association annual meeting in Evanston, IL.  I’m looking forward to seeing you all and meeting new faces as well.  Here are the details:
Date and Time: Thurs, August 8, 2-4 pm
Location: Orrington Hotel, Wheeler Room, 9th floor
If you have any topics you are interested in discussing, please send them to the group.  Even if you are unable to attend, please send any questions or thoughts you may have.    
Here are some topics I have in mind:
-If only one semester of Dance History is offered at a school, what topics are essential?
-Dance departments are attempting to diversify in many ways.  How can we teach dance history in a more inclusive way?
-Textbook/reading options
-Methods (or specific activities) to incorporate movement into lecture-style classes
All Best,

THE 2019 DUMBO DANCE FESTIVAL will kick off with WHITE WAVE’s Opening Night GALA Celebration. The evening will be hosted by a guest celebrity (TBA).

Afterwards, the audience will enjoy a reception with a buffet dinner of exotic Korean cuisine and a fabulous raffle (including gourmet wine baskets, “dinner for two” at local DUMBO eateries and much more)!
