Remember summer camp? You got to spend time away from home, socialize with friends old and new, and be mentally and physically exhausted all while having the best time of your life. It was awesome!
Well, the Dance/USA conference is my new summer camp! This year’s conference, in Cleveland, Ohio, truly ROCKED! I cannot think of a more fulfilling and stimulating way to spend 4 days. The conversations were deep, the performances were incredible, the classes fantastic and I left feeling rejuvenated and grateful to be part of the dance field.
In my new position as Executive Director of Dance Metro DC, I also had the privilege to sit on the Dance/USA Service Organization Council. The moments I had with this group of brilliant dance leaders are priceless. The years of experience, institutional knowledge, and true kindness they bring to the table is unmatched.
And, I found my twin! Two dance Eds at a service org council meeting with matching hair, black and white outfits, and twining poses…how could you not take a pic?! Nice to meet you, Surinder!
The DC dance community was also reppin’ hard at this year’s conference! It is always incredible to spend time with my colleagues and brainstorm new ways we can keep making DC the greatest dance city in the world.
A huge thank you to everyone at Dance/USA for all of their hard work. Y’all are superheroes!
The next Dance/USA conference is June 17-20, 2020 in Denver, Colorado! Mark those calendars now!
