Institutes and Latin American Festivals

2009 summer institutes are currently in the planning stages. You can view this past year’s institutes online to get an idea of the sorts of programs offered. Next year’s summer institutes will be published online in January. Remember, the teacher training scholarship application deadline is February 15, 2009. If you are planning to take training next summer, you may want to send in your video audition this winter to beat the spring rush.
