RSVP NOW TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT

Each DANCE NOW Community Gathering is unique to the artist hosting and the participants who share their thoughts and experiences. Artists provide a frame work and starting point for the discussion, often sharing snippets of work in progress, or techniques they use in their lives and creative processes. Participants each get a chance to respond and share, creating a thoughtful, in-depth discussion.

All Community Gatherings are part of DANCE NOW's IDEA efforts and is FREE to encourage accessibility for all audiences.
