About the 2020 Virtual Conference
The 2020 Annual Conference was shifted to a virtual convening format held on June 17-19, 2020. This Virtual Conference was open to all as we assembled in the sprit of solidarity to face this time of unprecedented challenges.

As with our prior Annual Conferences, this reconceptualized virtual model allowed attendees to uncover innovative approaches to mutual questions, share and access new resources and strengthen relationships among fellow dance professionals in order to create a more unified and sustainable field for the dancers of tomorrow.
