A Festival of Dance

The all-state dance organization, OhioDance, is about to unleash the power and beauty of their artform on Columbus through their annual festival. The festival is sponsored in part by the OSU Dept. of Dance. The festival includes discussions, classes and of course performances over its three days. All events will take place at the OSU Dept. of Dance studios and Barnett Theatre.

The theme for this year’s meeting of dancers is “Pathways from Past to Present”. This theme will focus on the connections dancers, choreographers and other dance-related thinkers can make connections between tradition and cultural history and making them relevant again through modern dance forms.

While many famous names will appear at the conference, not many are as recognized as Karen Hubbard. Hubbard is an Associate Professor of Dance at the University of N. Carolina. Hubbard teaches vintage jazz dance and has taught and performed all over the globe—she went spent time studying African and Kenyan dance through a Fullbright Scholarship to the University of Nairobi.

The conference takes place from April 27-29, 2018
