One of LDTP’s Artistic Directors, Juanita Suarez is sponsoring a National Dance Education Organization Symposium titled Dance 2050 May 21-24th, 2013 at the College at Brockport’s MetroRochester Center.
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. Discussion will center around how dance, and for that matter, all the arts can survive in the realm of higher education when the education system is being bombarded by forces such as the economy, corporate takeover, raised student tuition fees, and technology. 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?
