I’m traveling to Arizona in early October with the amazing people who made this film possible – Jody Gottfried Arnhold and Joan Finkelstein. We are screening the film and talking about the positive and incredible impact of dance education at the National Dance Education Organization (NDEO) conference in Phoenix!
NDEO is a non-profit organization “dedicated to the advancement and promotion of high quality education in the art of dance.” NDEO supports dance artists, educators and administrators from the local to the national level. We are so thrilled to be sharing this film with a crowd of professionals who are already heavily involved in making dance education not just possible but extraordinary.
There are so many more exciting places this film will go and opportunities this film will have. I can’t wait to share more of the happy news with you soon!!
Remember: There are currently close to 400 certified dance teachers to teach in NYC’s 1,800 public schools. We need a dance program in those remaining 1,200!! Join the #danceforeverychild movement on the PS DANCE! website, and you can help us spread the word about dance education in public schools, learn more from our many dance education resources and keep the film’s message alive beyond the five boroughs.
You can still tune in to the full-length documentary on THIRTEEN.org/specials, available now for streaming!
