Dance/NYC’s 2021 Symposium: “Justice. Transformation. Education.” will focus on reimagining the dance ecology with an 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 those in the dance field to exchange ideas, expand networks, sharpen organizational practices, and deepen the inquiry of New York City’s legacy and trajectory of dance-making.
