On November 19, 2016, join facilitators Liz Lerman and Yvonne Montoya and the New England Foundation for the Arts staff and National Dance Project (NDP) Advisors for Dance/AZ: Shaping the Future of Arizona Dance. This convening brings together Arizona's diverse community of dance professionals to envision a future for our field together! Whether you’re an independent dance artist, a dance company, dance educator, organization/venue/group who shows dance, or dance supporter, come share your voice in creating an inclusive vision for dance in our state.

The gathering will also provide opportunities to connect with dance community members, learn more about local resources, and engage in a conversation with NEFA about their dance programs and grant opportunities, which emphasize dance production and touring.
