Dance/NYC Releases Dance Industry Census Featurette

Thursday, Dec 15, 2022 at 11:55PM

New York, NY , United States of America

New York, NY (For Immediate Release)- The dance service organization, Dance/NYC, released a featurette highlighting the diversity and contributions of the New York City dance industry to the local creative economy. The video was produced to encourage individuals, organizations, and businesses to complete the Dance Industry Census, which will close on December 15, 2022 at 11:59pm EST. As Dance/NYC enters the final weeks of its effort to have every dance worker, dance business, dance organization, and dance-related group counted, leaders of the initiative and featurette participants hope the video reveals  the many ways dance happens in our communities and how integral dance workers, businesses and groups are to a thriving society. Dance/NYC also hopes the video will serve as a call to action for the dance community to make sure they are recognized and represented in the decisions about creative workers' rights, protections, pay equity and labor issues–decisions where the dance community is often neglected. Featured dance workers and organizations in the video include: 2022 Queensboro Dance Festival Ajna Dance Company Arthur Aviles, Alethea Pace, and Richard Rivera courtesy of Arthur Aviles Typical Theater Dance/NYC Dance Rising, Footage edited by Carley Santori Danielle Riley, Contemporary Ballet Theatre Devin Matias, Indigenous Dancer, Redhawk Native American Arts Council Donald Lee Gibney Dance's Digital Media Initiative Jason Samuels Smith courtesy of Divine Rhythm Productions Jeremy McQueen's Black Iris Project John Fernandez, Abrons Art Center Khalil Peoples, Contemporary Ballet Theatre Kwikstep a.k.a.
