Find Out About the 2022 BREAD Cohort.

What is Building Racial Equity in the Arts through Dance?

We pride ourselves on welcoming people from all backgrounds, but it is only by constantly questioning our own biases and holding ourselves accountable that we can live up to that ideal. BREAD allows us to understand our history and culture, as a dance community and as part of a larger world, and give participants tools to confront their biases and deconstruct racism in the world around them.

What Can You Expect?

In 2021, BREAD offered monthly training & dialogue sessions for dancers and dance educators with a facilitator who is an expert in anti-racism professional development. In 2022, we will re-imagine this important program to include a BREAD cohort. Stay tuned for more details. View previous BREAD workshops here.

Who is BREAD Intended to Serve?

Traditionally sessions have been open to the public, with a particular interest to serve choreographers, performers, highly experienced dance educators, and teaching artists who are just beginning to work in the field of dance education. As we shift BREAD to meet other critical needs, we also invite administrators, participants from various arts and educational disciplines along with participants from all locations and fields of expertise to attend!

BREAD was inspired by the racial equity training session at the 2020 ClancyWorks’ Dance Educators Training Institute (DETI).

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.
