NDEO and CLI Studios are thanking dance teachers around the world!

This year, CLI Studios is collaborating with NDEO on “Thank A Dance Teacher Day” because being thankful for amazing teachers is a topic we can all agree on.

#ThankADanceTeacherDay is a global movement to shine the spotlight on dance education and the teachers who make it possible. It was started in 2014 by the National Dance Education Organization to raise awareness of the benefits of dance education through social media. A quality dance education can have a life-changing impact on students, providing physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and psychological benefits. Professional development allows dance teachers to provide a better dance education experience for their students, as the teachers take what they learn back to their studios, classrooms, and communities!

Together, we are asking all dancers to say thank you to a teacher who impacted their lives. Continue reading to learn more about how you can participate in this year’s #ThankADanceTeacherDay!
