DCA Conference

Dance Critics Association Conference, June 13-15, Kennedy Center, Washington D.C.

I sent in my registration. Did you send in yours? This years Dance Critics Association Conference along with the Kennedy Center "Ballet Across America" program are being held at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. It's a three-day conference taking place on June 13, 14 and 15. This is a wonderful opportunity to take review writing workshop classes from well-known teachers such as Elizabeth Zimmer. Chief Dance Critic from The New York Times, Alastair Macaulay will be the keynote speaker and also speaking will be former NYT Chief Dance Critic, John Rockwell.

The Kennedy Center Millenium Stage is presenting dance performances of all types including BosmaDance, Jazzdance DC, and Silk Road. There will be mixed repetory performances from students of Bolshoi Ballet, School of Paris Opera Ballet, Royal Ballet School, and School of American Ballet. Here is a list of other area performances happening during this event.

My past experience at the National Dance Association and my current experience preparing for the NIRI Annual Conference has taught me that conferences are a great chance to both learn from speakers and workshops, but also to NETWORK with professionals in your field. I am extremely excited for the knowledge to gain and people to meet at the DCA conference. I hope to see you there!
