Pod de Deux attended this Dance/NYC 2016 Symposium discussion and workshop and learned how the CUNY Dance Initiative (CDI) is developing new dance audiences while offering NYC dance companies free space to rehearse and perform. After the session, we interviewed PDD alum Jamie Benson, who presented helpful tips on how to build a following with social media strategies. We also recorded enthusiastic feedback from audience members and another presenter, Charles Rice-Gonzalez, a CUNY Venue Director.
At the Dance/NYC 2016 Symposium we gathered thought-provoking feedback on an array of discussions presented throughout the day, including: New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA) Diversity Initiative, Dance with Technology: Silicon Alley Meets Silicon Valley, National Voices: Embodying Equity and Inclusion at Dance/USA, and A Journey through Juba and Other Social Dances.
Organizations were onsite at the Dance/NYC 2016 Symposium, offering information to dancers and dance-makers. We learned more about valuable resources provided by The Actor’s Fund (which recently acquired Career Transitions for Dancers), Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Jean-Louis Law, and Pentacle.
