The Dance Teacher Summit is committed to featuring emerging choreographers who foster the art of dance. To further this goal, the Summit is proud to announce the A.C.E. Awards Competition. This is a great opportunity for choreographers to expose their work to one of the most influential audiences in dance. All attendees are invited to this exciting evening event! The Capezio A.C.E. Awards will be held in New York City Only for 2018.
Over 100 exhibitors to explore for your upcoming dance season including competitions, curriculums, costumes, dancewear, technology, conventions, and so much more! The exhibit hall is free to attend, as we want all dance teachers to have the opportunity to be prepared for their upcoming year.
Don’t miss a thing! Classes will be available online for full attendees after the Summit by the end of September. Ever been to a teacher's workshop and felt like there was so much to do but you couldn't do it all? Or have you been frustrated that two of your favorite classes were going on at the same time and you had to choose? The Dance Teacher Summit has solved this problem with its new Summit Virtual Pass! After the event, each full attendee will receive online access which will include footage of the classes and seminars held at the Summit! The virtual pass is included with every full attendee registration and will be available until the next summer.
Fashion Forward will be the Dance Teacher Summit’s recital costume preview and fashion show. Fashion Forward will highlight the coming year’s newest styles and trends in dancewear, footwear and costumes. This runway style event is a highlight for our attendees! Fashion Forward will be held in New York City only for 2018.
Each full attendee will receive a Digital Summit Guide in PDF form to download which includes both seminar and movement session notes direct from the teachers. You can now enjoy the classes instead of trying to write down everything the teachers say! The Digital Summit Guide also includes exhibitor contact information and the Capezio A.C.E. Award program. The Digital Summit Guide is a great reference tool all year long and will be available one week before the event.
