About US

The BC Dance Educators’ Association is an association of teachers dedicated to supporting and promoting quality dance education for all British Columbia students. It is a PSA (provincial specialist association) of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. The association provides a network for dance educators at the Primary, Intermediate and Secondary levels, and provides opportunities for professional development, collaboration, awards, and grants. As a BCDEA member, you will join a network of K-12 dance educators in BC to share ideas and information and be able to participate in the annual conference that offers a variety of workshops and a valuable conference package including notes and videos from all workshops. To become a BCDEA member, you can now register online. Or, register here for the upcoming October 2020 conference to be automatically registered as a BCDEA member.
