"I've been teaching dance for over 7 years in CPS; Everything I've learned about Dance Education I've learned by participating in workshops and partnerships with Hubbard Street over the years. This week long intensive was the top so far because it applied to the age groups that I teach dance."  –  Natalie Davis, Dance Teacher
