Are you making dance happen in NYC? Join the conversation! 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.

WHEN: February 1 | 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Doors will open at 6:00 PM for food, check-in, and networking. Food will only be served from 6 PM–6:30 PM.

All conversations are free and open to the public. Limited capacity, entrance granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Online registration will close at 3:00 p.m. on the day of the event. On-site registration will be available. If you need assistance with registration, please email programs@dance.nyc.

These roundtable discussions are an opportunity for you to have your unique perspective as a dance worker or organization recognized and provide the dance community with a better understanding of the size, makeup, health and state of the dance ecosystem in order to address economic inequities in the field. 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.

COVID-19 Safety: Masks and proof of vaccination/or proof of negative test results are required. Learn more about Dance/NYC’s COVID policy.

Dance/NYC’s Dance. Workforce. Resilience. Initiative is made possible, in part, by leadership support from the Mellon Foundation, New York Community Trust, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Mertz Gilmore Foundation and a coalition of general operating support funders, and by public from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, and the National Endowment of the Arts.
