In 2023, OhioDance engaged in strategic planning. OhioDance desired to establish an organizational strategy that would leverage our history into developing new ways to connect, empower, and activate our membership, governing body, and community. From this plan we have created a new mission for the organization: To secure the foothold of dance in Ohio through increasing visibility, firming viability, and elevating the position of dance in Ohio.
At OhioDance’s annual festival you can meet with dance colleagues and enjoy a variety of classes, workshops, movement discussions, films and performances representing the state’s broad and diverse dance field. The Pre-Professional Concert help dance studios and school programs share their work and reach audiences.
Support for the Dance Community
OhioDance is your representative for dance at the state level. In partnership with such organizations as the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education and Art Possible Ohio, OhioDance creates a strong voice for dance in education, accessibility and legislation. OhioDance has represented the field in the development of teacher certification, the state arts curriculum, and the Dance Educators Resource Guide. Let your voice be heard by joining your colleagues in our network of mutual support.
