What is the Dance Industry Census?

The Dance Industry Census is the first comprehensive research study that aims to better understand the size, makeup, health and state of the dance ecosystem in the metropolitan New York City area in order to address economic inequities in the field and ensure that all dance workers are recognized and represented. Dance/NYC designed this two-pronged survey effort to collect economic, social, and demographic data that reflects the experiences of:

  1. Individual dance workers and
  2. Dance organizations, businesses, groups, projects, and sole proprietors.

The Dance Industry Census will investigate inequities in the dance workforce that exist at the individual and systemic levels, including wages, compensation, and working conditions. This information will help form a comprehensive picture of the dance workforce and a collective narrative of the needs, interests, and goals of the dance industry. The data collection period for the Dance Industry Census will run from July 20 through October 31, 2022.
