Hi everyone! if you haven't registered for the October 20-21 Superconference already, now is the time, as registration looks to be selling out soon.

There are plenty of dance-related workshops (descriptions available here), and zillions - yes, zillions! - of others, excellent keynotes, vendors, and opportunities to connect with colleagues from across the province across the two-day conference. Info on workshops, keynotes, registrations, hotels and more at the conference website.

We're looking forward to seeing you there-- say hi at our booth in the vendors hall or, of course, at one of the many dance workshops offered at the conference!

On October 20-21 2017, dozens of Provincial Specialist Associations will come together at the Vancouver Convention Centre for the 2017 PSA Super Conference! Registration includes workshops offered by any participating PSA. This means you could potentially learn about inquiry for your Social Studies 7 students, new secondary Biology curricula, ideas for supporting Aboriginal students in your primary classroom, and plenty else during your 2-day conference.

As for your friendly neighbourhood Dance PSA, well... here are a few of the proposals we've put forward to the conference committee:

- Dance and Children's Literature

- Kinesthetic Empathy in Dance

- Pow Wow Dance

- Roundtable on curriculum, assessment, and cross-curricular lessons

- Mathematical Movement

... with a few others in the works as well!

It'd be great to see you at the Super Conference in October 2017; we'll post registration info as soon as it's available.
