Co-presented with SFU Woodward's Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, Vancouver's on the MOVE is a FREE conference designed to assist, welcome, educate and integrate British Columbia’s emerging professional dance artists of all genres into the professional dance community. This year, OTM Vancouver 2012 was titled Community in Motion, focusing on advocacy; being an active and integral part of the dance community at large.
