The University of Central Oklahoma invites faculty and students to participate in the American College Dance Association's Central Conference, March 25-28, in Edmond, OK.  Our conference will be an exciting celebration of dance in higher education. The conference schedule will include a wide variety of master classes, scholarly research presentations, opportunities for student and faculty exchanges in and out of the studio, adjudication and informal concerts, feedback sessions and a Gala Concert. We are also planning for special faculty seminars and workshops and other opportunities for faculty development.  

The 2020 ACDA Central Conference will be guided by the theme: Global Visions. The conference seeks to connect one another through the wide array of dance forms from around the world.  Some offerings will include classes in Mexican Folkloric, Afro-Cuban and Flamenco as well as specialty classes in the hip-hop genre, such as tutting and waacking.

We encourage you to look through all pages on this website. Details on conference opportunities, including performances, guest artists and more can be found on the pages under CONCERTS+ on this website.  ACDA policy and informational documents, including "ACDA Regional Conference Policies For Participants," can be found on the ACDA website > FOR CONFERENCE PARTICIPANTS: Documents & Downloads.

Conference attendance is open to ACDA members and non-members, although only members may register during the member priority period and only institutional members may present work in adjudication concerts. Additionally, members pay a discounted registration fee. If you or your institution has not yet joined ACDA as an Individual or Institutional Member, we urge you to do so to receive the benefits of membership and to help further the important work we do for college and university dance programs. Visit ACDA's membership page for more information.

While we would like to accommodate all who wish to attend our conference, space is limited and registration fills quickly. Please note details about limits and timetables in the REGISTRATION pages on this website. You can track available spaces at the bottom of this page. The conference will accommodate 375 participants and 40 dances for adjudication. In order to accommodate as many schools as possible,a registration cap of 20 students per school will be in effect until October 23rd. 

All of us at the University of Central Oklahoma look forward to seeing you at the conference!
