CODE Conference, 2013 - What a Weekend!

The curtain went down on the 2013 CODE Conference after an incredible three days of drama, dance, education, and meeting up with great friends old and new. From October 18-20, the Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, Ontario became a hub for elementary and secondary educators, artists, pre-service teachers, professors and supporters of these two brilliant art forms. With a vast array of workshops to choose from, delegates and presenters alike got the opportunity to learn and share ideas, philosophies, techniques and activities to use in their classrooms to continue spreading arts education to our students. On this note, a HUGE thank-you to every workshop presenter, keynote speaker, delegate and volunteer who made this conference a tremendous success. While the workshops were fabulous, the very presence of all of these creative minds in one building was an inspiring experience. With the passion and dedication that the artists and educators of this province possess, drama and dance education is going to continue to grow and play remarkably important roles in the lives of students and grown-ups alike. Again, thank-you to everyone involved in this year's conference! In 2014, the CODE Conference will be travelling to Ottawa, and we hope to see everybody back for another drama and dance filled weekend. Tell as many people as you can and let's continue spreading the power of drama and dance!
