ATS® Reunion: Creating a Welcoming Community with Lisa

  • Embassy Suites Scottsdale (map)

Lisa is a juried instructor for 2020 ATS® Reunion in Phoenix, AZ

There are social, ethical and business reasons for examining how welcoming your dance community (or troupe, or studio) is to minority consumers including people of different race/culture/ethnicity, perceived socioeconomic status, sexual orientation and gender identity, disabilities, size and age.  In this workshop you will learn about hidden bias and ways to counteract it, how to use the stereotype inoculation model and other strategies to welcome diverse people into your community, and concrete strategies about the use of language and images to encourage diversity.
