Classes ranged from Community Yoga to Katherine Dunham Technique and Afro-Caribbean/Modern Fusion to Professional Development in Best Practices for teachers. The students were under the supervision of Angelika Summerton, senior lecturer in the Department of Theatre and Dance.

DaCi USA, a member of daCi International (dance and the Child International), celebrates the power of dance all over the world. It brings together people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures to experience dance as creators, performers and spectators.

The next regional daCI conference is planned for September 2020.
