A note from our committee head...|
The Texas Dance Educators’ Association (TDEA) has been in existence since 1978. In 2003, TDEA expanded its membership to include administration on both the campus and district level. Each year, the organization hosts a dance team convention in January at the Houston Marriot Hotel at Westchase. The one-day workshop is designed to provide an opportunity for administrators to observe innovative methods in teaching the Fine Arts Dance TEKS, collaborate with other administrators, receive legislative updates regarding dance education, and learn how dance education can positively affect student learning and campus goals . Many experts working within the Dance field at both the secondary and collegiate level provide information in dance supervision and guidance of Dance Education according to TEA guidelines. The Convention also gives administrators an opportunity to meet prospective dance educators and tour an exhibit hall of vendors
We are hoping you will be able to join us. Should you need more information, please contact either myself, Elaine Rudolph, at email@example.com, work #281-324-1845.
"I've been attending the TDEA Conference yearly. I've benefitted greatly from learning about the issues and sharing best practices that are specific to our dance programs. This strand has been working diligently toward advancing program standards, curriculum and advocacy for dance education in our schools."
