Open to recent graduates, self-taught choreographers and students, this gathering offers a space for exchange, while helping participants navigate a “post-pandemic” shape-shifting dance milieu.

Some of you have had few opportunities to practice your art in the “real world”; you may also be struggling to imagine your future. Concurrently, organizations and funding bodies are redefining who they are and how they work. Our intention is to provide some hope and understanding, as well as some tools to help you connect to the field –and to one another.

Please stick around after the event to meet the team during our late afternoon dance party 5@7 Sans Souliers



2 p.m. – Guest artists + your preoccupations
3 p.m. – Small group discussions
4:30 p.m. – Making sense together
+ 5 p.m. –  5@7 dance party!
