2019 National Dance Presenters Forum

2024 National Dance Presenters Forum (NDPF)

APAP, in partnership with Dance/USA, Jacob's Pillow, and the New England Foundation for the Arts,  invites dance presenters to apply for the 2024 National Dance Presenters Forum (NDPF), an immersive professional development experience.

The 2024 National Dance Presenters Forum will be a six-session virtual forum that will take place monthly between May and October with an eye towards an in-person forum in the summer of 2025. The goals of the 2024 forum are to:

  • Build the ecology of dance presenting as we emerge from the pandemic
  • Foster dialogue about the changed landscape of dance presenting
  • Encourage an expansive model of access and participation in the field

The structure of the 2024 NDPF will be six 90-minute virtual sessions held via Zoom.  A stipend for full participation in the Virtual Forum will be offered, expecting that if you agree to participate, you will attend all six sessions.

Applications are now open for the 2024 NDPF. 18 applicants will be selected to participate. Applications are due by March 15, 2024 and acceptance notifications will be made by early April 2024.
