State of NYC Dance

  • November 18, 2011

Dance/NYC has released a new report which highlights findings on New York City nonprofit dance that have been developed using information from the New York State Cultural Data Project. The report, State of NYC Dance, establishes key benchmarks for measuring the activity, economics and workforce of nonprofit dancemakers with budgets of more than $25,000.

Study findings underscore the value of nonprofit dance as a contributor to and an ambassador for New York City; demonstrate industry resourcefulness in attracting diverse revenue streams and its efficiency in putting resources to work in dancemaking; and yield fresh insights on the industry's reliance on part-time, contract and volunteer labor. The study also indicates a strong start-up culture in dance, particularly among dancemakers with budgets less than $100,000.
