This study was made possible with leadership funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and New York Community Trust. Founding support for Dance/NYC’s Dance Advancement Fund was also provided by the Ford 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, Gonzalo Casals, 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 Reccomendations
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.
