October 19-20, 2023

The American dancing body is a fusion of Ballet, Hip-Hop, Modern, and West African techniques. This understanding was a catalyst for the curricular revolution at the Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago in 2012. More than a decade since this transformation at the Dance Center, the impact locally and nationally has been profound. Now what needs to happen next in dance, both on the stage, in the studio, and in the classroom? Come participate in workshops, lecture demonstrations, screenings, performances, and conversations exploring the intersectionality of present-day dance!

A call is currently open for session proposals, due September 12. Some highlights of the symposium include: A New Decade of Dance Films: Screening and Performances by Kierah “Kiki” King and Patricia Nguyen presented in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Photography, The New Orleans Original BuckShop Workshop by Michelle Gibson, and MO(VE)MENT: Performance Showcase featuring Ayodele Drum & Dance, BraveSoul Movement, The Joffrey Ballet, and Mordine & Company Legacy Project.
