HDC President Andrea Downie's most recent article, Toward a Scope of Practice [of Dance Teachers], was just published in Dance International magazine's Winter 2017 issue, page 38. The article posits that dance teachers have a responsibility "to know and understand the extent of their expertise and to operate within those limits." On shelves now!
