"Conversation on Dance" Sept. 26


Please join dance professionals, scholars, presenters, and aficionados for a focused, facilitated conversation on Dance in San Antonio. Help create a new vision for dance in this city. If you love dance, teach dance, study dance, create dance or just dance, this is an important conversation that needs your input. Join us at the Radius Building, 106 Auditorium Circle, on Sunday, September 26, 2010 at 2:00pm.

We look forward to your participation and commitment as we seek to re-vision the future of dance in the San Antonio community. Even though we are the seventh largest city in the nation, the dance community here still faces challenges in creating a dynamic financial climate for the arts in general and dance specifically; especially when it comes to the small dance companies and studios that are the lifeblood of the creative community here.

The San Antonio Dance Umbrella (SADU) is a service organization whose mission is to promote dance in its myriad forms; support dancers, choreographers and dance companies in the San Antonio area; educate the general public about dance, dance performances, dance classes and dance appreciation. SADU is committed to ensuring the presence of dance as a vital and growing art form reflecting the rich cultural diversity of the greater San Antonio community and its visitors. The Sunday, September 26th activity is designed to provide an opportunity for everyone in the dance community to discuss issues of importance and concern to the field.

The San Antonio Dance Umbrella is dedicated to providing a number of activities and services to the dance community. They include but are not limited to:

Works in Progress (WIP) is held the fourth (4th) Wednesday of every month at JUMPSTART and is an innovative choreography development program created to support the development of new works by dance/performance artists and to establish a continuous dialogue between dancers, choreographers and audience.

Dance at the Radius is a series of free dance performances featuring San Antonio dance companies is held the third (3rd) Friday of each month.
