Susan Shields is an award winning choreographer, renowned performer and teacher, having recently become the director of the School of Dance at George Mason University. Her impressive accomplishments include creating works for several professional companies and universities as well as performing nationally and internationally as a member of such companies as Mikhail Baryshnikov’s White Oak Dance Project, Mark Morris Dance Group, and Lar Lubovitch Dance Company. Described by The Washington Post as one of DC’s “best-kept secrets” her choreography fuses formal ballet technique with modern shapes and movement to create innovative and emotional works. This style can be seen in ClancyWorks performance of Displaced, a personal and poignant dance of hope and heartbreak.

What is the ClancyWorks Dance Educators Training Institute (DETI)?

We believe that outstanding teaching takes place when educators are passionate and engaged in their own artistic growth! ClancyWorks Dance Company and Baltimore County Public Schools Office of Dance co-present intensive professional development programs for artists teaching dance, called the Dance Educators Training Institute (DETI). These week-long workshops are designed to enable participants to delve deeper into their artistic pursuits and to enhance their pedagogical techniques in a challenging and supportive environment.

Who is DETI Intended to Serve?

Sessions are open to the public, with a particular interest to serve choreographers, performers, highly experienced dance educators as well as teaching artists who are just beginning to work in the field of dance education. Administrators and participants from various arts and educational disciplines are invited and encouraged to attend the workshops.
