The Dance of the Future: Cultivating Duncan Dance for the 21st Century

June 16-18, 2013
at George Washington University
Washington, DC

You are invited to present at the first Isadora Duncan International Symposium.

The symposium is open to Duncan Dance practitioners of different fields, genres, techniques and forms including performance, choreography, repertory, instruction, research and scholarship, criticism, photography, visual and multimedia art and biography.

The symposium invites performers, choreographers, teachers, educators, artists, dance critics, dance researchers and artistic directors from all over the world interested in sharing and learning traditional methods and contemporary approaches in Duncan Dance to attend as presenters or participants. This symposium offers potential for international collaboration.

The conference working language is English.

You are welcome to take part in the conference as a Speaker, Presenter, Teacher, Panelist, Participant, and Observer

The symposium is an opportunity for Duncan Dance practitioners to demonstrate their methods and techniques, share important experience and knowledge, and present research and scholarship to a wider international Duncan community. It is also an opportunity for both presenters and participants to learn from each other in practical, theoretical, physical and artistic realms.

We will attempt to accommodate as many presenters as possible. However, the number of slots is limited.

The proposal deadline is MARCH 1, 2013. 


  • practical workshop/master class
  • choreography, repertory and works in progress (not requiring special technical conditions)
  • reading/lecture/presentation
  • panel discussions
  • roundtable discussions with moderator
  • video showings
  • other formats suggested by the presenter can be considered

To submit your proposal, please see the submission guidelines.

All attendees, including presenters, must register for the symposium. Symposium registration is $150 for the three-day event, and all sessions are open to all attendees.

We appreciate in advance if you could spread the word among your Duncan Dance friends, colleagues and community. Thank you very much for your creative work in the field of Duncan Dance, and we look forward to your participation at the symposium.
