DTSB&Co at WAISDEA conference

Connie, Kelly and Dana had a wonderful experience at the Washington Area Independent School Dance Education Association (WAISDEA).

There were several hundred high school dance students and their teachers who attended this year's conference at Sandy Spring's High School. Connie and Kelly taught dance and yoga classes and Dana spoke about choreography at a large assembly at the end of the day. Kelly and Connie did a wonderful job performing excerpts from dances and Dana spoke about the inspiration for the dances and how they were created. The students had excellent questions which ranged from asking about the rehearsal process to, what a dancer's day is like, to how is research of an historical event turned into choreography. Quite sophisticated questions!
