    The Sole Defined Live! programming series is the brainchild of Dance Place's 2018 Artist in Residence, Sole Defined. The series is intended to convene dance professionals to discuss topics impacting the dance world.

    Alison was honored to be invited as a panelist in the session that discussed the realities of being a dance professional in 2020. Topics included philanthropic patterns in the dance community, ways to increase equity across dance genres, and ways to secure funding via the traditional grant making process.
