Dance/USA’s Programming Committee is beginning the design process for discussion-based and practical breakout sessions for the 2018 Annual Conference. Our first step is to ask for your input.

As a Dance/USA stakeholder active in the field, please submit leading questions you feel are important to address during our time together in Los Angeles, CA. Your questions will allow us to identify trends, commonalities, and curatorial directions to build unique programming. We invite you to submit with or without the intention of leading a discussion or panel yourself, but with a deep inquiry into the future of the field. Learn more and make your submissions here.
