This study was executed by Dance/NYC and sheds important light on how the dance community is doing both programmaticly and operationally. It’s gotten coverage in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal, too!
via an introduction by Kate Levin, the city’s Commissioner of the Department of Cultural Affairs:
Taking a thoughtful approach, the study highlights the complex challenges facing this community, as well as its many accomplishments. By offering a detailed analysis of so many aspects of the dance industry – from the performers to the producers to the audiences – this report delineates many significant contributions to the City’s creative ecology.
So, give it a read and keep the dialogue going! It is only through understanding and conversation that we can continue to support the arts, and this report is a phenomenal start.
