What is the Dance Educators Training Institute (DETI)?

We believe that outstanding teaching takes place when educators are passionate and engaged in their own artistic growth. ClancyWorks Dance Company and Baltimore County Public Schools Office of Music and Dance Education co-present intensive professional development programs for artists teaching dance, called the Dance Educators Training Institute (DETI). These summer workshops are designed to enable participants to delve deeper into their artistic pursuits and to enhance their pedagogical techniques in a challenging and supportive environment.

Who is DETI Intended to Serve?

Sessions are open to the public, with a particular interest to serve choreographers, performers, and highly experienced dance educators, as well as teaching artists who are just beginning to work in the field of dance education. Administrators and participants from various arts and educational disciplines are invited and encouraged to attend the workshops.

DETI is Going Virtual!

Our annual Dance Educator's Training Institute (DETI) is scheduled to take place August 17-19, 2020.

This year, we've decided to take DETI online, due to COVID-19.

While we are saddened not to be able to hold DETI in person, we are excited to welcome people from around the world, who might not otherwise be able to join us! We will have more information about DETI Online in the coming days.
