Dance/USA is pleased to announce that the Opening Plenary session of the 2019 Annual Conference will be live streamed via Facebook Live on Thursday, June 13 from 9:00am-10:30amET from Playhouse Square’s Ohio Theatre in Cleveland, OH!
The Opening Plenary will include important announcements from Dance/USA Executive Director Amy Fittterer, a special performance by Creative Arts Dance Academy Advanced Ensemble, and a keynote address by founding artistic director of Prumsodun Ok & NATYARASA, Prumsodun Ok.
Born to Khmer refugees in the United States, Ok rose from the poverty and violence-stricken inner city of Long Beach to become the new face of Khmer dance. He uses art to heal, illuminate, and empower, reviving the spirit of his people from the enduring forces of conflict. Seen by many as a hero of Khmer culture, the artist, teacher, and writer works to shape a world where everyone can blossom into their fullest selves. Learn more about Ok here.
