The Independent Artist/Choreographer membership category is open to professional dance artists not affiliated with an incorporated organization or creating work in a structure other than the traditional 501(c)3 “company” structure. Artists who are affiliated with an incorporated dance company are encouraged to join as a Dance Company member.
Members in this category are invited to actively participate in the Artists Council, a Standing Council with representation and voting rights on the Board of Trustees. The Council provides artistic directors, choreographers and performing artists with a forum to discuss issues pertinent to their unique careers as well as resources and networking for professional development.
