Dance/NYC’s 2014 Symposium will explore the role and impact of dance in the New York City metropolitan area and dig deep into the current circumstances of funding, presenting, education, and community and civic engagement in dance. What does it mean to dance in New York, and what are the opportunities for advancing the City’s 1,200+ dance makers on local stages? How can New York City participate, learn, and lead in the dance landscape?

For more information about the program and speakers, see below or visit
Register before January 11 for discounted admission.

Envisioned as a meeting of stakeholders-advocates, funders, policymakers, artists, managers, scholars and audiences-the Symposium’s primary goals are to share innovation and information, form partnerships, and stimulate ongoing engagement.

The 2014 event will make use of multiple Gibney Dance Center studios for panel discussions, case studies, interactive workshops, one-on-one legal and management consultations, a networking lunch, and more.
