Three-days of quality subject-specific professional learning and development workshops and presentations for dance teachers, educators and practitioners from primary, intermediate and secondary classroom sectors. 

The conference will bring together dance educators and classroom practitioners and teachers from all over the country with a packed and varied programme which aims to provide opportunities for quality, intensive subject-specific professional learning and development, networking and socialising, all based at our conference hub Ormiston Junior College, Flatbush, Manukau, Auckland, New Zealand. (proposed) 

ON THE MOVE – Conference 2019 retains the name established for our 2017 anniversary event and provides a platform for dance educators to reflect on the moves and shifts that have occurred in their practices and pedagogies to-date and to then challenge these practices to ensure our association is always moving to extend both our students and our own creative impulses, outputs and our sense of purpose within the dance and education landscapes of Aotearoa.
