One of the organization's core services, Dance/USA conducts research having a national scope and provides information services to its members, the press, and the general public. Research projects include tracking trends on dance companies, conducting discrete examinations into topics of concern to the dance field, and collating and analyzing data on the operations, finances, and programming of Dance/USA's organizational members.
Dance/USA's research department ("Research") further supports the work of Dance/USA's other departments and special initiatives. Through the annually produced Snapshot of the Field, Research assists Dance/USA's advocacy work by profiling the economic contributions and diverse reach of the dance field. Research also conducts evaluations of programs such as the Annual Conferences and Dance/USA Institute for Leadership Training and works with the communications department to address press inquiries.
Questions about Dance/USA’s research should be directed to the director of research and information services.
