Welcome to DANC!

Dance Artists’ National Collective (DANC) is a growing group of freelance dance artists organizing for action toward safe, equitable, and sustainable working conditions.

We hold General Membership meetings on the first Monday of the month at 1pm ET (first-timers can join at 12:45 for an introduction and chat).

Our current work includes the creation of a letter of agreement template and a negotiation toolkit for freelance dancers; and a research drive to understand what dancers need from their art and activism spaces in this post-election, mid-COVID moment.
