The American Alliance of Performing Arts Educators is pleased to announce that it has awarded The Del Kieffner Award to Kathie Kececi for 2016. The Del Keiffner Award is an annual award given by PAE to recognize a director who represents those attributes desirable in all youth performing arts directors whether it be of instrumental, choral or dance groups.
The Del Kieffner Award honors a devoted music director, Del Kieffner of Orlando, Florida, who stands a representative for the multitudes and generations of performing arts teachers who each in his or her own way have selflessly taught and nurtured succeeding generations of young student performers.
Performing Arts Educators is pleased to present The Del Kieffner award to Kathie Kececi for her work among the students of In Motion: at Dorothy Del Guercio School of Dance in Mendham, NJ, as a mentor, friend, teacher and choreographer as well as for your support of those underlying values which unite all performing arts teachers.
The award will be presented to Kathie Kececi at Performing Arts Educators 10th Anniversary Celebration at Carnegie Hall on January 16, 2016
