Dance/USA is Coming to Chicago!

In case you haven’t heard, Dance/USA (the national service organization for professional dance) is holding its annual conference in Chicago July 13th through 16th.  This 2011 convening is anticipated to be the orgs biggest gathering yet of artistic directors, presenters, executive directors, company managers, artists, choreographers, marketing gurus, development divas and (thanks to a one-day scholarship – thank you!) even a little blogger like me.  The jam-packed schedule — here — includes receptions, roundtable discussions, plenary speakers, multiple break out sessions (management, artistry, audience engagement and technology), city tours and a number of performances at some of the city’s best dance venues.

Design it.  Dance it.  Be the Architect of your future.  With so many choices during the conference, you can design your own conference experience and attend those sessions that speak most to you.  I’m excited about the Technology – Next Generation Video Production:  Myths, Challenges, Opportunities session with TenduTV‘s Marc Kircschner, HMS Media‘s Scott Silberstein and TimeOut Chicago‘s dance editor Zac Whittenburg among others.  And of course the performances!  There are way too many outstanding artists performing to mention, so check out the line ups here.  Check out the e-journal for interesting essays by a diverse range of writers and speakers.

This is a perfect opportunity to gather with like-minded artistic folk and mingle, learn, engage and network!  Let’s show what a great dance city Chicago is by having a large community presence at the conference.

UPDATE:  Registration ends July 8th!
