CODE-UPON-AVON: GROWING YOUR SOUL
Saturday, October 19, 2019 9am - 5pm
Teachers of drama and dance in Ontario are fueled by the passion of possibility! The beginnings of the Stratford Festival hold this passion of possibility in common with educators who challenge students to create, interpret, and question our world. A beautiful Victorian town nestled in lush agriculture, boasting art, fine dining and beautiful scenery, Stratford is a great place to reseed your passion for Drama and Dance Education.
CODE-Upon-Avon is an exciting one-day conference for artists and educators that promises to reignite your enthusiasm and remind us of the importance of drama and dance to the lives of students who are indelibly touched by the work being done to build new generations of lifelong learners.
Start your day with a compelling keynote address and move through an inspiring track of workshops. Enjoy opportunities to connect with other drama and dance educators and leave with tools and experiences that you can bring directly back to your students on Monday. We will hear from and work with some of Stratford’s most exciting artists and educators who are guaranteed to energize and motivate!
Now in our 49th year, CODE invites you to spend the day engaged in professional development that will leave you full of new ideas for your pedagogical practice while you enjoy a day of fun at the Stratford Festival, one of Canada’s most renowned Theatre Festivals.
Keynote Speaker - Dan ChameroyFollowing global recognition for his role as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Dan Chameroy opens the day with a keynote that celebrates his passion for drama and dance and the importance of these subject areas to education.
