Residencies for Dance: APAP Dance Forum

Friday, January 6, 2012 - 9:00am - 12:45pm
APAP|NYC - Hilton Hotel, Avenue of the Americas @ 54th Street [ map ]

Kick-off 2012 by attending the Dance Forum, a free pre-conference event at APAP, exploring residencies in dance.

Residency programs provide artists with a unique opportunity to develop and perform their work in a supportive environment. Yet, while programs in the U.S. provide residencies to more than 10,000 artists annually, fewer than 10% of the participants are dance makers.

Attend the 2012 Dance Forum, presented by Dance/USA and APAP, to learn more about the state of residencies in dance.
