  • How can we use case study as well as statistical analysis to explore our effectiveness? Are these methods the best way to assess our teaching practices?
  • In what ways can data be used to better communicate and advocate for dance education? How can we most effectively speak to those outside our field?
  • What kind of research collaborations can we do to demonstrate connections between students who participate in dance programs and staying in school, graduating, and college attendance?
  • Is it meaningful to explore the correlation between K-12 Dance education and success in testing, or is this something that should be left behind?
  • How can we create curriculum that allows us to teach 21st century skills through dance?
  • How can we use data to evaluate our standards and more effectively teach dance literacy?
