We hope you will join us for the 57th CP of NYS Annual Conference to be held October 30 - November 1 at the Saratoga Hilton Hotel in Saratoga Springs. This year's conference is going to have a number of extra special sessions and opportunities for sharing with colleagues across the State - you won't want to miss it. Some of the highlights include:
Dance, Dance Dance!
In addition to some new twists to the traditional schedule, which we will highlight in future editions, we have an exciting special session on Monday, October 30. A Soloist and a Principal Dancer from the New York City Ballet (NYCB) will conduct a dance workshop for children with disabilities. There will be a brief presentation on the origins of the NYCB program. The dancers will then lead a movement workshop for a group of children with disabilities. A demonstration of what the children have learned in the workshop will be presented for conference attendees during the Awards Reception at the Saratoga City Center that evening. See a video about a similar program conducted by the NYCB in New York City
This will be a Must See Event!
