Make Memories in Dance

UDMA's "Dance Teacher Resource Expo" is the show where studio owners and their staff plan together, shop together, network together, and laugh together. It's the one show where you'll see your favorite vendors year after year, and share with them your accomplishments, or let them know how they can help you succeed. It's a place for dinner with your staff, drinks with your friends, and memories that will last.
