From those in Higher Education and K-12 to local studio teachers, across multiple disciplines and levels of expertise, we welcome a broad range of participants to join us. The DETI is designed to help participants delve deeper into their artistic pursuits and enhance their pedagogical techniques in a challenging, yet supportive environment. All sessions are open to the public, with a particular interest to serve choreographers, performers, highly experienced dance educators as well as teaching artists who are just beginning to work in the field. Organizational leaders, administrators, and participants from various arts and educational disciplines are also encouraged to attend.

According to our most recent poll, 100% of participants affirmed that they gained new knowledge from the DETI, which helped them to approach class planning more effectively. Learn and share new ideas for moving your hybrid or virtual dance classroom into the post-Covid school year. Continuing Professional Development Course (CPD) Credit from the MD State Department of Education is also available through the DETI.
