The conference provides a forum to experience and explore the intersections of Somatic Movement and Dance Education. How are dance and somatic educators collaborating to innovate practice and enhance learning in our fields? This dynamic partnership between two pioneering, internationally recognized organizations will deepen our common roots and ignite our imaginations. Somatic movement sessions, panel discussions, current research presentations, and curriculum design workshops are encouraged. Special attention will be given to experiential practices that inspire whole person wellness and artistic play.
- You may only submit one session as the main contact presenter. You may be a co-presenter on up to two other session submissions.
