Are you making dance happen in NYC?

Dance/NYC invites dance workers, organizations, and entities to join us for the Dance Industry Census Roundtable Discussion Series to capture real life stories from our industry. Your participation will help Dance/NYC influence and advocate for meaningful change in policies and practices that directly impact the dance industry, its many workers and organized entities. Data collected will be analyzed by Dance/NYC and presented in aggregate form in Dance/NYC’s State of NYC Dance research report, to be published in Fall 2023.
