We are now beginning analysis of the data received through the Dance Industry Census and Roundtable Discussions that will form the basis for the State of NYC Dance research report to be published in late 2023. 

With the Dance Industry Census, we received data from 1,649 individual dance workers and 398 organized entities

We hosted 10+ Roundtable events, where we reached 300+ dance workers and entities in the five boroughs of NYC plus three regional metropolitan areas (Jersey City, Westchester/Rockland Counties, and Long Island).

Visit the Census Data page for preliminary findings we are using to engage the community.
