In collaboration with community partners such as the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Utah State Board of Education, the Utah Arts Council, Salt Lake City Arts Council, Utah school districts, Art Works for Kids, and many other partners, Tanner Dance’s Professional Development Program offers a variety of training and mentoring opportunities, as well as resources, to help educators develop new ways to stimulate learning in the arts and make connections between the various art forms and other curriculum areas. The Professional Development Program provides a framework for educators to engage in teaching and learning activities that support the needs of their students while implementing the Utah State Fine Arts Core Curriculum and prevailing state and federal mandates.
