igniting a passion within educators - arts educator trainingARTS EDUCATOR TRAINING

Dancewave’s Arts Educator training combines over 25 years of teaching experience with field research from hundreds of dance residencies throughout New York City. We strive to ignite a passion within educators to make real social change through an education model that emphasizes experiential learning and community engagement.



Since our inception, Dancewave has promoted a culture model that strives to subvert the oppressive systems ingrained throughout the dance community. Inspired to share our educational philosophies, we created our educator trainings to invest in and nurture relationships with our Teaching Artists, so that together we can shift the dance ecosystem to one that prioritizes mental, physical and emotional wellbeing for all

Our training is applicable to recent graduates, educators, professionals and organizers seeking innovative techniques to cultivate a deeper connection with their audience.

UPCOMING - AUG. 30TH | 2:00 - 6:00pm

Dancewave’s annual Arts Educator Training will inspire teaching artists to build competencies in socially engaged, community centered pedagogies. Through supporting responsive, anti-oppressive, and experiential learning practices, Dancewave’s AET allows educators to deepen their practice alongside thought partners in the field. Join us as we galvanize the next generation of Arts Educators teaching for justice!
