1. Dance/USA Winter Forum
Upcoming Winter Forum
Human Resources and Organizational Performance
January 30-31, 2009 in New York City
PRICE AND REGISTRATION - Reduced prices! “I fear that our organizations do not give the needs of administrative staff nearly enough attention. Let’s take the lead and raise the bar on human resource development in the arts!” - Rachel Moore, Executive Director of American Ballet Theatre.
Who Should Attend: Managing directors, artistic directors, human resource managers, operations managers, administrative staff of all sized companies, presenters, agents, service organization directors, choreographers and dancers are all invited and welcome to attend!
On January 31st 2009, graduate students from across the country are gathering at the first Dance Across the Board Conference to present their research on dance and body-based performance. The theme, “Impulses to Begin,” will be explored through papers, performances, and lecture-demonstrations that address the various ways impulses may spur beginnings in practice, theory, and social movements. In this current climate of change, we are interested in examining the stimuli that spark desire for action and transformation.
Deborah Jowitt, Village Voice critic, dance historian, and master teacher at the Tisch Dance Department, will give the keynote address. This year’s conference features curated, informal studio choreography showings, papers, and dance technology projects, as well as a special panel on Dance and Education. Adam Natale, director of member services at Fractured Atlas, will also provide information about the non-profit organization’s services and support to artists.
Dance Across the Board (DAB) is an interdisciplinary platform for graduate students in New York City and surrounding areas. DAB seeks to provide an East Coast platform where graduate students working in various aspects of dance can come together and dialogue about their research and interests.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. For more information and to register, please email email@example.com with your name, affiliation, and contact information.
