Dance Forum

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 Forum takes place each January as a pre-conference event during the Association of Performing Arts Professionals conference in New York City. Past topics have covered national trends in funding, the myths and realities of touring, success stories for inspiring audiences and presenting dance, and more recently, in 2019, dance advocacy, regional dance touring initiatives, and next-wave of dance leadership.

During the Dance Forum, Dance/USA also provides updates on upcoming programs, new research initiatives, membership, and more. Dance Forum is free and open to the entire dance community; APAP registration is not required.

Dance/USA is pleased to bring Dance Forum to the 2019 Arts Midwest Conference. Learn more about Dance Forum MIDWEST here!
