Join Dance/NYC and American Dance Abroad for a town hall discussion with 10 international dance presenters and producers participating in the second edition of American Dance Recon. Made possible with lead support from the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, American Dance Recon is a unique symposium for international presenters to reconnect with American dance and/or to use it as reconnaissance to better appreciate the diversity of American dance. In this town hall, New York City dance makers can learn about participants' work and curatorial styles, and trends in dance abroad, from Latin America to the Middle East, Asia, and Eastern Europe.

American Dance Abroad launched in July 2011 as a program to expand opportunities for equitable cultural engagement between American dance artists/companies and their international counterparts. American Dance Abroad's mission is to expand international visibility for American dance by creating opportunities upon which longer-term, mutually beneficial relationships can be built. Major support for American Dance Abroad's projects is provided by the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation's Fund for National Projects. americandanceabroad.org

Join Dance/NYC at The Martha Graham Center of Contemporary Dance on the evening of October 29, the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy's arrival in New York, for an action-oriented discussion about the hurricane's impact on the dance community and its efforts to rebuild. What were the primary areas of damage and loss incurred by the field, and what progress has it made towards recovery? In the aftermath of the storm, how have dance makers strengthened their business practices, artistic development, and relationships with peers and the public? Led by Shirley Levy of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the panel will address these and other questions, and explore strategies for advancing the field's resilience to future disasters.
