Dance Forum


The 2021 Dance Forum is Going Virtual!

Join us for the 2021 Dance Forum on Thursday, January 14 from 12pm-2pm ET, presented by Dance/USA as a post-conference APAP event. The Dance Forum is FREE and open to all. Learn more about the Dance Forum Programming HERE!

The annual Dance Forum brings together a wide variety of individuals working in the dance industry to  discuss immediate, field-wide issues.  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 2020, dance touring today and dancemaking and community building.

Jumpstart 2021 with us as we explore the field’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, new developments and partnerships that have manifested as a result of this crisis, and most importantly how this all may affect your work now and in the future. Programming includes the following:

  • Speakers from the NEA will share new guidelines on how to successfully navigate the upcoming grant cycle, 
  • Medical experts will provide guidance on best practices to keep your communities safe, 
  • Organizations that have joined forces will share the unified process of their creative collaborations.
