Organization Membership

The Organization Membership is open to dance companies, venues and presenters of all sizes and genres that maintain on-going performance activity, have at least one paid artistic or administrative staff member, and have been in continuous operation for at least one year.

We are requesting each member’s basic organizational information to gather valuable industry statistics for the Chicago area. Increased data about the dance sector will help Audience Architects more fully understand the dance industry’s economic impact, and advocate for support. Your participation will enable Audience Architects to more accurately articulate the scope of the Chicago dance field to funders, government agencies, and other professional networks around the country. Thank you for your participation!
