“Dallas Dance is a leader among leaders. His work with Pasadena Unified School District provided inspiring and actionable guidance for administrators, teachers and community leaders alike. Dr. Dance began his work here with a series of trainings for our K-12 principals and assistant principals, targeting their role as visionary and instructional leaders. He further committed to the yearlong development of our Aspiring Administrators, a cohort of teacher leaders preparing for the principalship and other administrative roles. His training and mentorship of this particular group fostered a strong internal network of leaders that now positively impacts PUSD through their myriad roles at school sites and district office. Dr. Dance was additionally asked to provide the Keynote Address during the annual Spring Event of our Pasadena Educational Foundation. In all interactions, Dr. Dance has been a motivating presence in support of schools and students.”

“Dallas Dance was the keynote speaker for the Innovation for Rhode Island School Leaders Conference held In June 2017 at Bryant University. The event brought together central office and building level leadership teams on design thinking to bring innovation and empowerment to districts. We could not have made a better choice for a keynote. Dr. Dance’s focus on the success of every child, his real-world experience as a principal and superintendent, and his personal energy and commitment provided energy and inspiration to the attendees. Already known to some of the audience as a leader in school technology, Dr. Dance demonstrated why he is one of the leaders in public school education in America today.”

“Dr. Dance spoke to our group of 600 Alabama school board members and superintendents as part of a conference on ‘leading change.’ He was not only a pleasure to work with in preparation for the conference, but his engaging presentation on board leadership and his intense focus on equity and culture also left our audience inspired and energized. The passion with which he spoke about the change he led in Baltimore County Schools was contagious, and the information he shared was extremely relevant and valuable.”
