Services and Information Requests

Dance/USA provides a range of services associated with data collected. Many of these services are provided as a benefit of membership.

Company Profiles

One of the most common requests from Dance/USA members is that they be placed in context relative to more or less comparable companies around the nation. Dance/USA draws on topics including budgets, income sources, staff sizes, and number of dancers to prepare materials for these member companies. 

Customized Data

Dance/USA is often asked to comment on or provide information about particular types or groupings of dance-makers. For each request, we pull data matching a unique set of characteristics, then draw conclusions for the requestor.

Survey Editing

When constructing a new survey or re-evaluating the effectiveness of an existing survey, Dance/USA can serve as a skilled and experienced reviewer of survey instrument drafts. Our researchers do this as a service to the membership.
