The University of Texas at El Paso invites faculty and students to participate in the American College Dance Association's South-Central Conference, March 12-15, 2020, in El Paso,Texas. 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, guest artists, and a Gala Concert. We are also planning for special faculty seminars and workshops and other opportunities for faculty development. 

The 2020 ACDA South-Central Conference will be guided by the theme: 2020 Vision of Dance, which serves as inspiration for creative discussion, classes, performances, and presentations that explore the ways dance can be most relevant and holistic in the upcoming decade and beyond. We hope you will join us in defining how we can best position dance for audiences and performers alike, presenters and scholars, in the theater and out in the community.

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.

All of us at UTEP look forward to seeing you at the conference.
