About Women in Dance Leadership Conference:
Women in Dance Leadership Conference is the first and only festival in the U.S. to celebrate women in dance.  It is a leadership conference for and about women.  The conference is to investigate, explore, and reflect on women’s leadership by resenting innovative and multicultural dance work to celebrate, develop, and promote women’s leadership in dance making, dance related fields, and other male dominated professions.

At the 2018 conference, we will have Liz Lerman as the keynote speaker, and we will present female soloists including 1) Blakely White-Mcguire, a former principal dancer and now guest from the world renown Martha Graham Dance Company, 2) Yin Yue, award winning choreographer and dancer, 3) Indya Childs, Top 25 to Watch named by Dance Magazine in 2015.
