On September 26th, Governor Jerry Brown corrected a longstanding injustice in California’s arts education delivery system, and set the course for a brighter future for California’s students by signing SB 916 (Allen) into law.
This new law addresses an issue that has burned in the hearts and minds of California’s arts education advocates since 1970, when Dance and Theatre credentials were eliminated. Senator Ben Allen (D-Los Angeles), Chair of the Joint Committee on the Arts, introduced Senate Bill 916, the “Theatre and Dance Act” (TADA!), to establish those credentials. SB 916 was passed unanimously by both houses of the legislature, buoyed by the support of Annette Bening, the California Teachers Association, the California Federation of Teachers, and a multitude of organizations and individuals across the state.
The California Alliance for Arts Education, California Dance Education Association, California Educational Theatre Association, and Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts invite you to join us as we thank Senator Ben Allen and celebrate the return of our Dance and Theatre credentials!
