"21st Century Dance Writing: Multimedia, Multiarts, Multitasking"

NEW YORK – The Dance Critics Association returns to New York City for its 2012 annual conference being held June 22-24, 2012. The conference, called "21st Century Dance Writing: Multimedia, Multiarts, Multitasking," will be held at the Joan Weill Center for Dance in New York City, home to the Alvin Ailey dance companies and school.

Panels planned for the 2012 conference will look at some of the current issues impacting the field of dance writing and dance writers.

The conference will begin with a keynote panel led by Virginia Johnson, artistic director of the Dance Theatre of Harlem on how changes in the cultural landscape have impacted changes in dance coverage.

Other panels will include sessions on:

• The state of dance criticism today
• Lessons to be learned from critics of other art forms
• The Merce Cunningham legacy
• Dance writing in the digital age
• The growth of dance on television
• Choreographers who use language in dance

The 2012 DCA Senior Critic Award will also be awarded during the conference as well as the new Calliope Award for outstanding service to DCA.

Other highlights include Elizabeth Zimmer's Kamikaze Writing Workshop.

The conference will coincide with performances by, among others, the Limon Dance Company at the Joyce Theatre and American Ballet Theatre at the Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center.
