CODE, the Council of Ontario Drama and Dance Educators, is grieving the loss of one of our founders and honorary members, David Booth. David has taught, mentored, inspired, and motivated thousands of students and teachers during his years as an educator. His loss is being felt keenly all around the world and we, as an organization and as individuals, are deeply sad.
