Washington, DC – Dance/USA, the national service organization for professional dance, announced today an important update about Dance/USA Connect: DC.
Over the past two+ years, Dance/USA has appreciated our field’s collective nimble agility and creative adaptations in the face of ever-changing circumstances. These qualities are embedded in our organizational values – creatively is how we endeavor to lead and support our member community and the wider dance ecosystem.
Like you, Dance/USA continues to exercise these muscles, and today we are putting what we have learned into action with the announcement that Dance/USA Connect: DC programming will shift to a virtual schedule, making this vital content more accessible to all. The details are still being developed, with more information to come.
Individuals already registered for Dance/USA Connect: DC will be issued a full refund.
The decision to reimagine Dance/USA Connect: DC was not made lightly, as we so deeply desired to convene our field in-person in Washington, DC this spring. Dance/USA is sensitive to pressing issues impacting our colleagues and attendees including the continued impact of COVID on our work and lives. We look forward to convening with you – our friends and colleagues – again soon.
Dance/USA still plans to host Dance/USA Connect: Denver, August 17-19. Learn more here and plan to join us in person!
