The following resources are for finding and securing music for choreography, compiled as part of a special 2018 program, Music and The Choreographer, funded by the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation. Dance/USA would like to give special thanks to Corey Field for his assistance with this program.
How and where choreographers find music is as wide and varied as the endless kinds of dance genres in creation. If you have a resource for finding music that you would like to see included here, please email Dance/USA.
