Dance/USA Annual Conference 2021: The Shift to Shared Leadership
Organized and moderated by Co-AD Katie Wong, this panel discussion for Dance/USA's Annual conference brings together co-leaders from three distinct dance organizations — RAWdance, Hope Mohr Dance/The Bridge Project, and Gibney — to unearth their approaches to shared leadership. Together we will explore the value of a more creative and expansive approach to leadership — from the potential for a better quality of life, to the social impact of a more lateral and equitable decision-making practice.
How does one make the choice to shift from a sole director or founder-led organization to one with distributed leadership? What are the benefits of deep collaboration in partnership, and how can this serve as a powerful reflection of an organization's evolving mission?

Presented by Yerba Buena Gardens Festival, ChoreoFest highlights the spectacular strength, diversity, and vibrancy of the Bay Area contemporary dance scene. Curated by RAWdance’s Artistic Directors, the fourth annual YBG ChoreoFest is reimagined as safe artistic gatherings in response to San Francisco’s return to live, outdoor performances. Spanning three Saturdays this summer, nine local companies will activate and enliven the beloved downtown park with special site-specific performances.
