Live from San Francisco! (And by live we mean recorded)

Last week, hundreds of dancers and dance administrators gathered in San Francisco dusa-2for the annual Dance/USA conference. ┬áIncluded in this year’s programming / festivities was a more professional #SKYNOVA internet program (you might remember the last time we filmed episodes at the conference they were shot in my hotel room).

This year, thanks to the Amy Fitterer and her fantastic staff at Dance/USA and the generosity of the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and ODC, we were invited to film from the conference floor.

During the three days we spoke with true legends in the dance field. The mix of interviews and Cold Case Studues (Harvard Business Review case studies decoded by cultural sector administrators) live on this playlist. Additionally, we were able to continue the It Gets Better dance community series and those videos will be posted shortly.
