Dance/USA provides a range of services associated with its research activities. Many of these services are provided as a benefit of membership.
One of the most common requests from Dance/USA members is to be placed in context relative to other dance companies around the nation. Dance/USA draws on data collected through its Directory of Not-for-Profit Dance Ensembles, member surveys, and other sources to provide data to its member companies on such areas of interest as company budgets, sources of income, staff size, and number of dancers.
In addition, Dance/USA is often asked to provide information regarding more particular trends or characteristics of the dance field. Where such information is available, Dance/USA assists such requests for more heavily customized data.
For both types of requests, please contact the director of research and information services. Please submit your request at least 14 days in advance of your deadline.
Dance/USA is currently in the midst of a staff transition within its Research Department and is not taking information requests at this time.
The Dance/USA Mailing List is an excellent way to reach out to dance companies, presenting organizations, service organizations, university dance programs, and agents. Our mailing list is updated annually and contains over 400 addresses, including member and non-member dance companies and dance-related organizational members. Dance/USA organizational and affiliate members are eligible to receive complimentary copies of the mailing list each year. Individual members and non-members may rent the mailing list for a nominal fee.
See more information about renting our mailing list.
Dance/USA has published a number of books and reports on the dance field. Please contact the director of research and information services with any requests concerning Dance/USA publications.
All media requests for information on the dance field should be directed to Dance/USA's communications specialist.
