Dancing into the future; practices, insights & innovations
19 – 21 January, 2024
Following the success of Dance and Dance Education in an Age of Interconnectivity Royal Academy of Dance Australia is hosting our fifth international conference, Dancing into the future; practices, insights & innovations. The conference aims to bring together dance teachers, scholars, researchers, practitioners, and innovators to investigate best practice in dance teaching with an exploration into both historical and contemporary approaches and a reorientation to teaching models and methods at the forefront of dance pedagogy.
“I am so pleased to be presenting our 5th conference on dance and dance education in Sydney in January 2024. We have some special venues lined up and can’t wait to bring the dance community together again after a few years of digital dancing.
Dancing into the future; practices, insights and innovations aims to continue our tradition of providing rich, learning and sharing experiences by exploring dance and dance education models and methods that investigate best practice in dance teaching.
We are calling for contributions that provide opportunities to explore practices, insights and innovations that support learning and teaching across all dance contexts, genres and cultures. We aim to thread topics that explore dance techniques, creativity, artistic value, and physical and mental wellbeing throughout the conference programme, with a strong focus on cultural identity, celebrating diversity and making dance experiences accessible, equitable and equal for all. I hope you will consider joining the discussion in Sydney.”
