Created in 2015, in partnership with Fractured Atlas, Dance Business Bootcamp is a workshop for independent artists, choreographers, and dance groups with budgets below $200,000.
A practical, business skill-building session, Dance Business Bootcamp provides a hands-on learning experience focused on the creative practice and the innovation required for starting, leading, and maintaining small dance businesses.
Each year, Dance Business Bootcamp is offered as a full day of programming at the Dance/USA Annual Conference. The Conference gathers 450-500 dance professionals from across the United States and abroad for four days of professional development, networking, and performances.
The inaugural Dance Business Bootcamp workshop took place at the 2015 Annual Conference in Miami, FL. After receiving positive feedback from Bootcamp participants, the workshop was offered again at the 2016 Annual Conference in Austin, TX and the 2017 Annual Conference in Kansas City, MO, with the support of local funders. Since its inception in 2015, Dance/USA has engaged Fractured Atlas to facilitated Dance Business Bootcamp.
