A World of Dance
Volume 21 | Issue 1 | Buy a print copy
Traditionally, we ring in the New Year with a look at dance on the global stage; this year we highlight dance education’s role in fostering cultural diplomacy and diversity.
Around the world, Dancing to Connect workshops partner American and local teachers; around the nation, dance teachers incorporate Japanese culture in their classrooms; and in New York City, afterschool programs embrace cultural differences.
