In response to public health recommendations and careful consideration of the health and wellbeing of the dance community and beyond, National Dance Week will be pivoting to a digital platform. We have invited the dance community to creatively respond to our current state through virtual platforms, while maintaining health and safety as a top priority.
From April 18-24, Cultural Services will be posting daily exclusive content from the Eugene dance community on Instagram, Facebook, and eugfun.org. Local dancers will be responding to the question: “How does dance help us creatively respond to and navigate times of change?”
Use #NDWEugene to submit your own dances and responses to this question, and stay tuned for daily online inspiration from the dance community!
Brought to you by the City of Eugene with support from these local businesses. Thank you to our sponsors for making Eugene a great place to live, work and play!
Special thanks to DanceAbility International for providing inclusion services and training during dance week.
History of National Dance Week: National Dance Week was formed in 1981 when a group of dance-related organizations began a strong grassroots movement to bring greater recognition to dance in the United States. National Dance Week celebrations occur throughout the nation.
