Judi Hofmeister was hired at Douglas County High School in Castle Rock, Colorado in 1993 after leaving a ten-year professional performing-arts career. For twenty years Miss Hofmeister taught theatre, dance, vocal music, and sat as chair of the performing-arts department. In 2000, Judi was selected as the only Colorado public-school dance teacher to help develop and pilot the International Baccalaureate (IB) dance program. Her work on the IB Dance curriculum required multiple trips abroad to Cardiff, Wales and The Hague, Netherlands to collaborate with curriculum specialists and dance teachers from various countries. For fifteen years her IB Dance program was the only one of its kind in the state of Colorado.
Judi was awarded Dance Educator for 2009 by the Colorado Dance Alliance (CDA), and is the past president and a founding member of the Colorado Dance Education Organization (CoDEO). She currently is the Dance/Drama and Theatre Arts Consultant for the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) where she facilitates the development of standards, and curriculum for dance and theatre teachers throughout the state. Judi attended Loretto Heights College, the University of Denver, and Regis University.
Judi is available for large or small group professional development seminars or workshops, arts integration consultation, or development of performing arts standards, curriculum and assessments. Please visit Judi at: www.h2ohproductions.com
