The training is designed for dance educators who are interested in exploring and expanding teaching practices and paradigms to include a variety of people and bodies.


The lab and curriculum designed and facilitated by Bailey Anderson with support from Le Cirque Centre’s Artistic Director, Sonya Smith, Rosely Conz, and Amanda Benzin. Together they bring technical expertise from aerial dance, rhythmic tap, jazz, to various forms of modern, improvisation, and classical ballet. We will be applying theory across disciplines and genres with a community that asks questions from various perspectives.


The certificate program includes 25 hours of critical
pedagogy discussion, practice, and application.
