Dance/USA presents a series of five free webinars this fall, made possible by The Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation and The Wallace Foundation. Three webinars will explore issues around music and dance and two webinars will explore new learnings from The Wallace Foundation’s Building Audiences for Sustainability initiative.
This webinar will feature national experts and highlight resources to assist in the search for music for choreography.
Obtaining music rights for choreography can be complicated, time consuming, and expensive. Gaining insights into the process of securing music rights and licensing for dance is a must for every choreographer and dance manager. This webinar will discuss how to navigate the process as a choreographer and/or manager who is new to securing rights.
Hear from the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC), which with the support of The Wallace Foundation, is working to attract the growing, local community of young African Americans in New Orleans, a group historically underrepresented in the CAC’s performance programs, by launching educational and social programs that promote lively interaction between performing artists and the community.
Choreographers are constantly seeking, securing, and commissioning music to create their works of dance. This webinar will hear from several of today’s female choreographers on how they are navigating the world of music for choreography.
