Virtual Conference app.
The Dance/USA Annual Conference is an invigorating gathering of dance professionals united by their interests in advancing dance and celebrating the joy of movement. This year, Dance/USA will convert their in-person gathering to a 3-day virtual experience. The 2020 Virtual Conference will include a series of six webinars and three pre-
recorded movement classes. Council and Affinity Group meetings, Dance Business Bootcamp, Archives, Dance/USA Fellowships to Artists, and other sessions will be taking place virtually
throughout the month of June.
Now more than ever, we must do whatever is necessary to gather and unite the dance
professionals of our nation. To discuss and discover, reflect and reimagine, and exchange ways to repair and rebuild our field. We have an opportunity to render the changes we have always wanted to implement and progress our field to new heights.
The Dance/USA Virtual Conference serves as a means to convene in this time of unprecedented
challenges. Together, attendees will discover innovative approaches to shared problems, share
and access new resources and strengthen relationships among fellow dance professionals.
Reconceptualized, the Annual Conference turned virtual will still allow one to invest in themselves, their organization, and the future of dance; signing off ready to impact the dance world with new ideas, fresh ways of thinking, and more confidence in ones work.
