There are many ways our dance students can thrive professionally in the dance industry, and what better way than to connect them with professionals they call family. We’re encouraging them to think intentionally about their futures, and these conversations will provide important knowledge, guidance, advice, connections, and information to help our students set and attain their professional goals.
The public is welcome to join us to listen in on these inspiring conversations.
Registration is free.
