- Promote, support, respect and reveal the rich cultural diversity and multiplicity of vertical dance composition
- Disseminate artistic and technical approaches of the practice without imposing restrictions on the art form
- Engage in peer to peer exchange respecting a culture of safety
- Nurture critical thinking, reflection and intellectual debate on vertical dance
The Vertical Dance Forum considers itself as a platform or an umbrella. It does not seek to represent the art form in its entirety but rather to bring up a reflection about the art form.
