Are Dance Competitions Disrupting the Power and Progress of Dance Education? - FREE Webinar - NDEO Members and Non-Members Welcome
Presented by Chasta Hamilton
Tuesday, January 24 from 6:30pm-7:30pm ET
Chasta Hamilton decided to remove her dance studios in Raleigh, NC from the competitive dance industry. Based on her experiences as a competitive dancer, teacher/choreographer, adjudicator, and studio owner, she felt there had to be a better way to offer elevated dance education experiences that featured a stronger return on investment and aligned more with her vision to create a humanistic approach for all. In 2020, Chasta published a book Trash the Trophies: How to Win Without Losing Your Soul, which detailed her experience in making this move. This webinar will feature an overview of her experience, experiences that have been shared with her, and how we can collectively consider dance education's potential for positive impact as we cultivate the performers, and leaders, of tomorrow.
