Key Advocacy Issues

Dance/USA serves as the national voice for dance before Congress, the White House and federal agencies. As a founding member of the Performing Arts Alliance (PAA), Dance/USA works with the broader arts field to advocate for the development of national policies that recognize and strengthen the dance field's ability to contribute to American life. All Dance/USA members are also members of the Performing Arts Alliance.

Dance/USA also serves as a National Partner for Arts Advocacy Day, participating in the Legislative Planning Committee to draft annual legislative issue briefs on a variety of arts policy topics. In partnership with the broader nonprofit community, Dance/USA works with organizations such as Independent Sector and the ad hoc Charitable Giving Coalition on issues that impact the nonprofit sector, such as the charitable deduction.
