DIRECTOR OF PROGRAMS - Position Overview
The Programs Director is in charge of three major programs at Dance/USA:
- Annual National Conference
- Annual Dance Forum
- Institute for Leadership Training
Annual National Conference
Dance/USA’s Annual Conference brings together hundreds of administrators and artists working in the not-for-profit dance sector, and working in all regions of the United States. These professionals convene to discuss timely issues, learn best-practices, honor their colleagues, and benefit from peer-to-peer discussions. Dance/USA’s Annual Conference takes place in different regions of the United States each year and includes four full days of professional development programming and special events.
Annual Dance Forum
The Dance Forum is an annual 3-hour convening hosted as a pre-Conference event at the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) Conference in New York. The Dance Forum brings together a wide variety of individuals working in the dance industry to connect with peers and discuss immediate, field-wide issues.
Institute for Leadership Training
Dance/USA’s Institute for Leadership Training (DILT) is a mentorship program meant to leverage connections between industry leaders and emerging artists to bolster personal and professional development through one-on-one mentoring relationships. The program runs June-December each year, and all participants meet at Dance/USA’s Annual Conference to kick-off the program.
