About Us

The Dance Subject Association New Zealand (DSANZ) was formed in 2007 to support primary and secondary school dance. The aim is to provide advocacy, communication, professional learning and development, resourcing and information about national and international dance education research.

The DSANZ committee is a national steering committee of school teachers from across NZ and is elected by dance education teachers via the Dance Subject Association meeting at the Teachers' Refresher Course Committee (TRCC) conference. The chair is elected by the committee. The current chair is Polly Thin-Rabb who took over from Gaylene Edmonds in 2013.

DANZ acts as a conduit for the DSANZ. All dance educators are welcome to become members of the Dance Subject Association. Membership to DSANZ is $50.00 per year per school. If you are a freelance tutor or teacher trainee, the membership fee is $20 per year.
