AEMS is proud to recognize Maryland principals who ensure a high-quality arts education for their students. The Alvin and Louise Myerberg Arts Leadership Recognition Awards are presented to outstanding principals from Maryland public school systems who recognize the power of the arts in preparing the 21st century learner with 21st century skills, and in doing so support teaching in and through the arts as a way of engaging students.
AEMS is proud to partner with dance advocates from across the state in the presentation of the Maryland Public High School Dance Showcase (MPHSDS). The MPHSDS showcases excellence in public school dance education in Maryland. High schools submit audition materials, attend a full day of master classes, share with other dancers from around the state, and are exposed to college and university dance programs in Maryland. Showcase also provides the additional opportunity to celebrate student achievement with the presentation of the All-State Dance Awards and the Showcase Award for Professionalism and Performance.
