Building Community at the CODE conference

The Council of Ontario Dance and Drama Educators ( is a phenomenal organization of elementary and secondary teachers.  Every year the organization hosts a large conference with stimulating workshops in dance and drama.  I am here in Collingwood representing DanceWorks at the Trade Fair.  I am trying to make more teachers aware of the work we do.  This year DanceWorks is offering four secondary student matinees (the most ever!), and one special post-secondary matinee.  With the new Ontario Dance Curriculum, it is great to see more and more dance organizations at CODE every year.  Teachers are very excited about the 2011/12 Season programmed by Mimi Beck.

Mimi is in Calgary this weekend for the CanDance Network’s AGM and the Fluid Festival; I am here in Collingwood for CODE; and Rosslyn Jacob-Edwards is holding down the fort in Toronto for Zata Omm’s performances of Eight Ways from Mara.  What a weekend!
