Dance/NYC’s 2021 Symposium will focus on reimagining the dance ecology with emphasis on advancing justice, civic engagement, and the whole dance worker. It will invite participants to investigate topics of decolonizing dance education, community organizing and social change, governmental advocacy, among others, in the context of a global health crisis and the social justice uprisings of 2020.



As the only gathering of its kind for the dance community in the metropolitan New York City area, the Symposium is a meeting place for the dance field, to exchange ideas, expand networks, sharpen organizational practices, and deepen the inquiry around New York City’s legacy and trajectory of dance-making.

 

Dance/NYC 2021 Symposium is made possible by the generous support of its sponsors with special thanks to Con Edison, the 2021 Symposium Lead Corporate Sponsor and Jody Gottfried Arnhold the 2021 Symposium Lead Dance Advocate.

Mellon Foundation and the Howard Gilman Foundation. The Symposium is also supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, from the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and from the National Endowment for the Arts.
