Dance/NYC's 2013 Symposium will explore the role and reach of New York City dance, and dig deep into the current circumstances of funding, touring, marketing, and education. What are the opportunities for advancing the city's 1,200+ dance makers on national and international stages and for building bridges with sister dance artists and institutions? As a stage for dance, how can NYC participate, learn, and lead in the dance landscape?

Envisioned as a meeting of stakeholders–advocates, funders, policymakers, artists, managers, scholars and audiences–the event's primary goals are to: stimulate awareness, interest, and ongoing engagement in NYC dance; share innovation and develop collaborative advocacy, marketing, management, and creative models and information for use by the dance community; generate dialogue and forge dynamic partnerships among individuals and across nonprofit, government, and private sectors.
