Carrie Ann Inaba Keynote Speaker for 2nd Annual Masters of Dance Seminar!

University College and Extension Services (UCES) at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) is proud to announce our 2nd Annual Masters of Dance Seminar (MODS) to be held on Saturday, March 28, 2009 from 8:00am – 3:00pm in the CSULB Walter Pyramid with keynote speaker, Carrie Ann Inaba.

MODS brings together industry professional dancers and choreographers from Broadway, ballet, world-touring companies, music videos, film and television. The unique experience provides participants with an opportunity to see and hear, first hand, the vast industry opportunities available. At last years MODS Carrie Ann awarded three dance scholarships to K. McManus a high school senior who had only started dancing 3 years prior; C. Price a 13 year-old ballet pointe student and S. Beachley a junior high school 7th grader who loves ballroom dancing.

By attending MODS's 2nd annual event, participants have the opportunity to not only be exposed to a rich mix of information in a fun and professional environment, but to work with each master instructor in a group setting; learning steps, perfecting techniques, asking questions, and gaining knowledge of the history and nuance of each dance style. The day will culminate with Carrie Ann Inaba awarding more dance scholarships.

For the first time this year a Dance Showcase has been added following the seminar that will highlight various professional and non professional dance groups from industry, schools, colleges, and private studios. If you are interested in participating in the dance showcase, please contact: Marvin Mayo at or (562) 985- 2889. Also, to take a glimpse at last year's event, please visit:
