State of NYC Dance
This report highlights findings on New York City nonprofit dance that have been developed using information from the New York State Cultural Data Project (CDP). The CDP offers detailed information on the finances, programs and employment in arts and culture, much of which has never been collected in a systematic way before. The report includes all New York City-based organizations self-identifying as dance specific with annual budgets of more than $25,000 that completed a “review complete” CDP profile for FY 2009 or 2010 by the time the study was conducted. While the focus of this research is on dancemakers, the sample also includes presenters, educational institutions and service organizations all concentrating on dance. These categories are somewhat indistinct, with, for example, some presenters offering programs comparable to service organizations and some dancemakers providing substantive educational programs.
