How did we get here?  What’s our story? Please join your peers from our Surprisingly Big Dance Town for an afternoon for sharing stories of the history of dance in Minnesota.  A panel of long-term dance community members will share their stories, and you will be invited to share yours.  What do we remember?  What have we learned?  How does our collective story inform where we’re headed? 

Our panel of peers will include Myron Johnson, Ballet of the Dolls; Mary Moore Easter, Carleton College; Heidi Jasmin Hauser, Hauser Dance; Louis Robinson, Ragamala Dance; John Munger, Third Rabbit and Dance/USA; and Linda Shapiro, Dance Critic.  The session was developed by Mathew Janczewski, ARENA Dances, in partnership with the Cowles Center for Dance & the Performing Arts. 

Support provided by Engaging Dance Audiences, administered by Dance/USA with funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the James Irvine Foundation.
