Programming at the Conference will be a mix of discussion-based sessions and practical breakout sessions. Broad questions that will drive programmatic content and conversations will be: How will we continue to finance dance, How will dance deal with constant technological change, and What is the social responsibility of dance? Dance/USA’s core values of equity, inclusion, and diversity will serve as a lens by which the design of all topics and sessions will pass through including but not limited to the diversity of voices being presented, addressing the needs of the diverse group of Conference attendees, and program designs that allow for active discussion.
The full agenda for the 2017 Dance/USA Annual Conference is still taking shape. Over the coming months we will be adding specific breakout sessions, speakers, and other information to the website.
See below for a broad overview of the Conference schedule.
