fostering community in dallas dance


a weekend of gathering, dancing and sharing


we want to hear from you

Hosted by Agora Artists and facilitated by dance career counselor, Suzie Jary, Dallas Dancers Forum invites dancers, teachers, organizers, and administrators to dialogue about the Dallas dance ecosystem. This community organizing event offers various ways to contribute to the conversation including large and small group discussions, creative games, and a box for anonymous comments. The forum's dynamic format will keep our minds and bodies engaged as we explore questions about what Dallas dancers want and need. We want to hear from you! The forum will run from 2pm until 5pm with coffee and light refreshments. You are welcome to join us for any portion of the event.
