Dance/NYC understands the serious impact Coronavirus (COVID-19) is having on our community and continues to closely monitor the news regarding the virus. The health of the New York City dance community is important to us and we are committed to doing our part to address this threat seriously and proactively.
Please use the COVID-19 Resources Pages on the Reopening Digital Toolkit, launched on February 16, 2021.
COVID-19 IMPACT SURVEY FOR THE NEW YORK CITY DANCE COMMUNITY
Dance/NYC appreciates the deleterious financial impact that the Coronavirus may have on the dance community, in particular organizations and artists dependent on in-person gatherings, classes, and performances as sources of earned income, as well as artists and cultural workers without readily available access to healthcare and wage protections. We also recognize that African, Latina/o/x, Asian, Arab, and Native American (ALAANA), immigrant and disabled artists may face additional challenges accessing necessary resources at this time.
In order for Dance/NYC to better serve and advocate for dance organizations and individuals in the dance community, we are asking that you take this brief survey to help us understand the impact the coronavirus is having on your organization and work. It should not take more than 10 minutes of your time. If you are both an independent dance worker and part of a dance organization, group or project impacted by COVID-19, please take the survey for each category. Additionally, Dance/NYC recognizes that the Pandemic is ongoing, and encourages you to take the survey multiple times as the impact of COVID-19 deepens over time.
We value your input and will use it to create public awareness and guide policy, resources, and program development for dance makers and organizations based in the metropolitan New York City area.
CORONAVIRUS IMPACT DATA FINDINGS ON THE NEW YORK CITY DANCE COMMUNITY
Dance/NYC understands the key role data has in ensuring dance workers and companies are advocated for and that their needs are served at this time. Since launching our Coronavirus Impact Survey, we have been analyzing data on a weekly basis with our current research consultant, Carrie Blake at Webb Mgmt. These data analyses include the current and potential impacts of the virus on individual dance artists as well as dance organizations, groups and projects in the dance field at large.
