Guest Curators and Symposium Programming Committee:
The guest curator program works to ensure that Dance/NYC is in alignment with, and amplifies the voices of, the communities it aims to serve and is made possible through the generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Symposium Programming Committee exists to advise Dance/NYC in the programming and direction of Dance/NYC’s yearly Symposium—and, by extension, further the dance field in NYC.
