  • Public Ballroom Teacher Workshop

    All public school Ballroom teachers, please see the letter below from Angela Williams, President of UBEA, about the teacher workshop July 7-8, 2020:

    “Dear Ballroom Dance Educator,

    My name is Angela Williams and I am the president of the UBEA, Utah Ballroom Education Association. We are a group of Ballroom dance educators throughout Utah that get together and hopefully make Ballroom Dance a strong and positive influence for students, the school and the community.

    This year we have had great support from Tamara Burnside at the State Office of Education to take some great strides forward for Ballroom Dance in Public Education. First, with the help of Tamara and the UDEO, we have put together Ballroom Dance Guidelines that correlates with the Utah Dance Core. Secondly, we have reviewed and revised the Ballroom Dance Endorsement. These two things will now allow Ballroom Dance to count as Fine Arts Credit in Utah Public Schools…”

    “…As we begin a new year (which we still don’t know what it will look like), we would like to offer a 2-day workshop. During this workshop, we will go over the Ballroom Dance Guideline document (especially the Creative Strand) and help all Utah Ballroom Educators implement this in their curriculum. We would also love to have all teachers involved in teaching Ballroom Dance in Utah have the Ballroom/Social Dance Endorsement. And lastly, we will be reviewing Social dance figures, going over Ballroom Dance teaching techniques and discuss Blended learning for the upcoming and uncertain school year.

    We will be offering the workshop through MIDAS so you can receive 1 credit of USBE relicensure credit. As we get all teachers endorsed, we will also offer Teaching Techniques and Ballroom Dance Beginning and Intermediate classes in the future.
