The theme and title of the conference, Dance Matters: Fusion, is about fusing life, art, collaboration, science and health.

Special events include a free-to-the-public Dance Showcase at PlayhouseSquare featuring several of Northeast Ohio’s finest professional dance companies and artists, an informal showing of work by pre-professional and professional artists, and discussion panels and education sessions that encourage a dialogue between the pre-professional and professional world of dance, and those who teach, guide and lead in those areas.

The introduction of regional conferences gives those who can’t travel the opportunity to attend the festival. Reducing its carbon footprint is another way that OhioDance is committed to benefitting the communities that it serves in Ohio. Member of the Cleveland community may be able to take a bus, bike or walk to the event, reducing on gas emissions.
