Washington, DC – Dance/USA, the national service organization for professional dance, is pleased to announce the launch of the Directory of Not-for-Profit Dance Ensembles, a listing of professional tax-exempt dance ensembles and fiscally sponsored dance artists based in the United States or a U.S. territory. The Ensemble Directory is a new, searchable data set that showcases the wealth and breadth of professional not-for-profit dancemaking taking place in this country.
Dance/USA is pleased to offer the Directory of Not-for-Profit Dance Ensembles as a service to the dance field. It is a work in progress and Dance/USA looks forward to building on the Ensemble Directory to more comprehensively capture the scope of the professional not-for-profit dance field.
We believe that dance is essential to a healthy society, demonstrating the infinite possibilities for human expression and potential, and facilitating communication within and across cultures. We are committed to honoring, nurturing and advancing dance through the lens of diversity, inclusion and equal opportunity in all aspects of our programming, services and organization.
