About: Dance/NYC is pleased to announce the Redefining Practice town hall series, which will take place both online and in-person. As the landscape for dance as professional practice, living ritual and technical production continues to evolve, Redefining Practice explores how artists and institutions are adapting, unlearning and innovating new ways of being in creation––and the many phases that creation takes––to prioritise new learnings in racial justice, physical/emotional safety, and community care.

Dance/NYC convening is made possible, in part, by support from the Howard Gilman Foundation and the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, the New York State Council on the Arts and from the National Endowment for the Arts.



Dance/NYC seeks partners and speakers with a variety of viewpoints for its events with the goal of generating discussion. The inclusion of any partner or speaker does not constitute an endorsement by Dance/NYC of that partner's or speaker's views.
