Connections: Dance Touring and Performance Opportunities
The annual Dance Forum brings together a wide variety of individuals working in the dance industry to connect with peers and discuss immediate, field-wide issues. The 2016 Dance Forum will be presented in a workshop-style convening with plenty of opportunity to dialogue with peers from across the country and internationally.
This event will include the voice of the artist, dance company manager, agent, presenter, service organization, and more. The morning will be a dynamic combination of large and small group conversations and networking opportunities. Come explore how we can pro-actively increase performance opportunities through the relationships between multiple stakeholders that make performance opportunities possible. These relationships will be presented in small panels, or snapshots, before we break into group discussions.
During the Dance Forum, Dance/USA will give updates on upcoming programs, new research initiatives, membership, and more. There will be coffee and time to network with your dance industry colleagues throughout the Forum.
Before the Dance Forum begins, please join Metris Arts Consulting and New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) for a share out of preliminary findings from research on the National Dance Project’s retrospective and field scan. Starting at 8am in the Trianan Ballroom, this session will include interactive opportunities for the field to “ground-truth” the preliminary findings and shape the final research. This session and the Dance Forum are free and open to the dance community; APAP registration is not required.
