Washington, DC – Dance/USA, the national service organization for dance, announced today an update about the 2023 Dance Forum. 

For many in our community, the Dance Forum, a pre-Conference convening that takes place before the start of the Association of Performing Arts Professionals (APAP) Conference, is a valued opportunity to catch up with colleagues from across the dance ecosystem. 

During the height of the pandemic in 2021 and 2022, Dance/USA shifted the Dance Forum online to ensure our community remained connected. Like many of you, Dance/USA continues to navigate our current reality and the ongoing impact of COVID, and to explore and embrace aspects of our work that might be reimagined. Today’s times require us to be responsive, flexible, adaptable, and open to change. 

Over the years we have received consistent feedback that time for conversation and networking is what is most appreciated about the Dance Forum. With this in mind, and centering our core value of connectivity, Dance/USA is excited to share that we have been working closely with APAP, as a valued partner, to ensure the dance community has just that – time for conversation and networking.

On Friday, January 13 from 9:00am – 10:30am ET, prior to the start of the APAP|NYC+ Conference, APAP will host a Dance Community Roundtable. This event is free, and while APAP|NYC+ Conference registration is not required, attendees must register for the event.  

In 2024, Dance/USA looks forward to hosting the Dance Forum as we have traditionally hosted it in years past with plenty of time for invaluable conversations and moments for connection.
