Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The WDC Education Department strives towards maintaining an interest in sustaining, developing and growing our beautiful dance form. We feel a deep passion towards the Art of Ballroom Dancing.
As with any art form, we must keep the flame burning for future generations. Without development most products have an expiration date.
The responsibilities lie primarily with teachers and educators, yet decisions will inevitably be determined by future champions, as these gather knowledge and data along their dance journeys.
Each country and its members are irreplaceable to the WDC infrastructure and the role of the WDC ED is to help stimulate and promote excellence in education for the World Dance Council and Amateur League community.
For the first time since the birth of the WDC Education Department, we are going to tour in order to reach out on a more personal level. We believe a closer connection to individuals will enable us to better understand the current needs of dancers, teachers, educators and adjudicators worldwide.
We are more than pleased to announce The 2015 Congress Tour. This year’s theme will be:
“ In Search of Excellence”.
The Congress will be available at 4 locations worldwide starting in the summer of 2015. We will be touching upon certain aspects including teaching, judging, artistic interpretation, body physics and more.
We are specifically intending on reaching out to young professionals and current competitors whom have just embarked on their journeys of contributing to the development of our industry. However we welcome with open arms all, who are interested in bettering their skills.
Head of The WDC Education Department
