Sixty scholars will be in attendance to discuss the future of dance in higher education. The symposium’s topic is Projecting Forward: Cultivating Leadership in Dance for the Future.

As the public no longer feels a need for degreed certification and many courses are redesigned to serve online communities, how will dance survive when the infrastructure supporting dance begins to disappear?
