Dance Teacher Summer Conference ’08

The Dance Teacher Magazine Dance Teacher Summer Conference is happening again and I’m gearing up that in a major way.

How cool is it to be around a bunch of teachers who love what they do and want to get better at it?! It’s really awesome to all those who are participating this year (and years past).

I’m looking forward to getting out there and talking with teachers to figure out what their biggest marketing problems are?

If you care to weigh in, I’m very, very happy to hear it. Post a comment below.

    Yeah, I have to agree on most of that. I think they knew it wasn't that great so they decided to not do it again and take a year off to re-group. THEN, Gil Stromming stepped in and is taking over. It's a new thing called the 'Dance Teacher Summit' and it's going to blow the old conference away.

    Check it out if you haven't already:

    He basically took everything that sucked about the old one and cut it out or improved it a bunch on the new one. I'm excited for it!

    David,

    Too bad you missed it. You heard right so I understand how it's a little confusing. The normal people who put that event on were going to take a year off. Then, Gil from Break the Floor Productions stepped in, rebranded it at Dance Teacher Summit, and really gave it wings. It was a super cool event. Look out for it next year.
