Considering your airfare, hotel, eating out, the cost of the actual conference, and so on, dance teacher conferences can be pretty expensive. So you need to have really strong feelings about why dance teacher conferences are worth the money, in order to justify making the financial investment to attend one.
Over this past weekend there were two major dance teacher conferences in the U.S., and with the Dance Teacher Web Conference & Expo coming up in a week, I had to write this post. So many of you attend these conferences each year, and walk away feeling refreshed, inspired, more knowledgeable, rejuvenated, and filled with new ideas for the upcoming school year.
So I wanted to write this post as sort of an open forum for you to share your feelings and thoughts on why you believe that dance teacher conferences are worth the investment, and also share some of what you learned.
Please leave a comment below and share:
What dance teacher conference(s) you have attended?
What did you like about the conference?
What did you learn from the conference?
What was your favorite aspect of the conference?
What actions did it motivate you to take over the next 30, 60, or 90 days?
Would you recommend it to your friends?
Please share your comments and answers to these questions below. It will be very helpful to so many dance teachers and dance studio owners, and especially useful to those who have not been able to attend one of the conferences.
Please share this post on Facebook and Twitter, and let’s get the discussion going!
