Prepared by Julie Koo, Vice President, TDC, and Mireya Gurrera in collaboration with Dance/NYC's Immigrants. Dance. Arts. Task Force.
This study was made possible with leadership funding from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Founding support for Dance/NYC’s Immigrants. Dance. Arts. initiative was also provided by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Mertz Gilmore Foundation. Dance/NYC research is supported, in part,
by the City of New York, Bill de Blasio, Mayor, and the New York City Council, Corey Johnson, Speaker, through the Department of Cultural Affairs, Tom Finkelpearl, Commissioner; and by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature
Comments and Recommendations
The value of this research, as a tool to guide policy and fund development and to improve management practices, will be measured best by its application—the dialogue, creative problem solving, and action it generates to address inequities in dance and move the art form forward. Dance/NYC wants to know what you recommend and invites you to weigh in, using Instagram, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or e-mail.
