Dance 2050: What is the Future of Dance in Higher Education?
Social, educational, technological, economic, and artistic changes, innovations, and challenges emerging in the 21st Century suggest the need for a re-envisioning of dance in higher education. The blind reviewed think tank entitled “DANCE 2050: What is the Future of Dance in Higher Education?” formed in 2011 and deeply examined the roots, current state, and future projections for dance in academia. The group has published a vision document written to help dance departments frame their programs in the modern era. At present, this group of educators is researching the role of dance education in fostering leadership development and community engagement.
