On August 3rd and 4th, HDC participated in Dance Teacher Expo, which was held in Toronto. During the event, HDC member Dr. Tanya Berg gave a workshop on Dancer Screening for Dance Educators that was very well received! She was assisted by HDC Vice President Louis Laberge-Côté. Louis was also in charge of the HDC information booth on site. Many Dance Expo participants showed interest in our organization and asked for additional information. Thank you Tanya and Louis for representing HDC so well!
