Dance/NYC’s 2021 Symposium will focus on rebuilding the dance ecology with emphasis on civic engagement, deepening justice and a focus on the whole dance worker. It will invite participants to investigate topics of decolonizing dance education, community organizing and social change, governmental + social advocacy, among others, in the context of a health crisis and in the wake of the social justice uprisings of 2020.
As the only multi-day gathering of the dance community in the New York metropolitan area, the Symposium aims to create a meeting place for the dance field, to exchange ideas, expand networks, sharpen organizational practices, and deepen awareness and direction of New York City’s legacy of dance-making.
