UDEO FALL CONFERENCE
The purpose of the UDEO Fall Conference is to provide our Utah dance education community an opportunity to learn, share, gather new ideas and gain insights about the art of dance. Educators are able to hone their pedagogical and artistic skills while learning from relevant artists that are forging forward in the dance community.
WHEN IS THE CONFERENCE?
The next UDEO Fall Conference will be held on Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 at Weber State University. Check-in begins at 8:30 am, classes end at 4:00 pm and lunch is included.
