Oxford Dance Forum

Oxford Dance Forum (ODF) is a collective of professional dance artists. It exists to support the professional development of dance artists in Oxfordshire, at all stages of their career. We recognise, draw on, and invest in the skills of individual dance practitioners. And we celebrate diversity and dancers’ individuality. The forum also aims to be an advocate for dance locally, regionally, and nationally.

ODF is run by a voluntary Steering Group, who makes decisions on behalf of and in the wider interest of the membership. At the AGM on 27 Jan 2022 the steering group was re-elected. Currently serving are:  Jenny Parrott, Ségolène Tarte, and Susie Crow.

You can always contact the Steering Group by emailing oxford.dance.forum@gmail.com

Finally, a grateful note:

Thanks to a small amount of leftover funding (from a previous project; see Archive), ODF can employ a 1-day-per-week administrator. She is a great asset to the smooth day-to-day running of the collective.
