Research & Information

Dance/USA’s Research and Information is one of the organization's core services. Our research serves as a platform for talking about the national dance field, demonstrating commonalities among members, and cultivating dialogue grounded in facts among local dancemakers.

Dance/USA conducts research in three main areas:

  • on the state of the national field,
  • through member surveys and services,
  • and in conjunction with our special initiatives.

To learn about the state of the national field of dance, visit the Snapshot of the Field and the National Company Roster.

Member services include the Annual Data Surveys for dance companies, the annual Holiday Production Survey, and various data collected on a range of topics. The Costume and Set Repository is available for members as well.

Questions about Dance/USA’s research efforts may be sent to the director of information services.
