ALL ABOUT EDUCATION
Our HEAT faculty is committed to shape, inspire, and educate the next generation beyond just steps and what’s trending now. We believe that this powerful platform we have as educators should teach and inspire our students – moving them to spread more positivity and give them the tools to succeed, not only as dancers, but as citizens of the world.
EDUCATION – BEYOND THE STEPS
HEAT is the only convention to provide tools & training at events and through free webinars, both on and off season. Our goal is to bring a change to the convention world and educate our teachers and the next generation about important subjects that affect our dance industry.
Our topics include: self-empowerment and positive affirmations, mental health and social media, race and dance history, keeping dance safe and autonomy, diversity and inclusion, developing self and a brand, bridging the gap between concert and commercial dance, and building a successful dance career.
POSITIVE CONVENTION ATMOSPHERE
HEAT is committed to providing our dancers with both positive instruction and a safe and approachable environment. We believe that our teachers and mentors should be down to earth and accessible, not idolized and intimidating, in order to to inspire and push our dancers to their full potential.
HEAT was designed to help our dancers grow, pursue their goals, and prepare them for the real world – especially in the dance industry. HEAT provides our dancers with highly sought out opportunities to pursue their dance career in a variety of directions – whether that be commercial, theatrical, company, or collegiate.
Our partners include: AMDA, Hussian College, TAPS, Joffrey Ballet School NYC, Bloc Talent Agency, Go2Talent Agency, and Millennium Dance Complex.
