You. Me. The Big Apple?

In one month, I’ll be in New York City.

I’m headed to the Dance Teacher Summit to get ready for fall teaching, to see some of my online buddies in the flesh, and to make some new friends, too.

Do you plan to be at the Summit?

Or perhaps in NYC between August 5 and 7?

If so…

I’m staging a ‘Friends of Dance Advantage’ meetup.

Nothing formal.

Say hello, introduce yourself, exchange info, stay and chat, or all of the above. I’d just like to connect (however briefly) in person with you for a change.

If you’re going and you’re game, please leave a comment below. Or, you can email me at this address:

Nichelle's email

I’ll iron out the when, where, and how and let you know the details via email.

Hope to see you there!

    Hi, there! I’m not a dance teacher and won’t be at the conference, but I am a New Yorker and it would be fun to meet. Problem is, I’m away through the 6th. I’ll be home on the 7th, if you’re gathering then. If the meeting is before that last day, I’m so sorry to miss you all!

  5. Nichelle,

    Would LOVE a meet up! I’m not going to the summit but am around!

    FYI for those who aren’t going, you can get a free Exhibit Hall pass to check out the vendors (some of our friends like and ABC for Dance and lots of others will be manning their booths), it’s also possible to purchase separate tickets for the ACE awards concert and the Fashion Show/Cocktail Party.
