Dr. Sue Stinson is Professor of Dance and Interim Dean of the School of Music, Theatre and Dance at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She has published her scholarly work in multiple journals and book chapters, and presented in a number of countries in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and the Pacific. Her research has focused on both theoretical issues in dance education and how young people make meaning from their experiences in dance education. A founding member of daCi, she has served as international chair, conference co-chair, and research officer, and has delivered keynote addresses at several previous conferences.
Dance, Young People and Change brought together young people, parents, educators and others from around the world to share and consider the role of dance in young people’s lives. It provided critical evaluation and reflection on approaches to dance learning, teaching and curriculum for young people and offered opportunities to critique the relevance of dance for young people within education and community contexts.
