Founded at Stanford University, Design for Dance brings together a vanguard of industry leaders to design for dance, wellness, and workplace fulfillment. Join us as we discover the unharnessed potential of dance to improve health, collaboration, and more. Encompassing scientific research, education, and corporate benefits to dance, this conference is not to be missed.
Join us at the forefront of an innovative movement to change everyday life through dance.
In 2016 we will explore the intersection of dance and technology. We bring together leaders in technology, educators, and dancers to discover and demonstrate specific tools that apply to everyday life.
This year’s Design for Dance conference is proudly co-presented in San Francisco by ODC Theater.
Scientific research has shown that we can only get people to do what they already want to do. People want to dance, and at Design for Dance we are sharing opportunities for employees, teams, patients, and clients to dance in a fun and stress free environment. We invite you to be a part of the movement!
Play on Purpose is a special evening program to get to know fellow attendees and celebrate the Design for Dance community. Also open to the public if you want to invite friends. This event is not included in conference tuition, you must register separately. Space is limited. Please register below.
“Play is the highest form of research.” -Albert Einstein
Join us for an engaging out-of-the-box experience that induces a flow state ideal for innovation, and transforms strangers into community. Using embodied play as a metaphor, you will learn skills to help you thrive in the unknown, feel safe to explore new ideas, and make the collaborative process faster, easier and definitely more fun. In this highly experiential workshop, participants will find new levels of connection and creativity, stimulating insights that can be applied directly to improving collaborative relationships.
