Dancers Amplified

Dancers Amplified is a global, artist-led organization that provides support and resources to its network of dancers to better ourselves, the companies we work for and the communities we live in. We are a hub connecting dancer-activists engaged in a sustainable shift away from the harmful, divisive, and racist cultures that have long permeated the dance industry. Global change begins with local action.

Dancers Amplified partners with DANC to provide anti-racism resources and information for equity, diversity, inclusion, and access policies to the dance community beyond elite ballet companies and on an international scale. Both organizations seek to give agency back to dancers, reallocate power and distribute it evenly amongst artists, removing the hierarchy and dismantling the structure that holds ballet elite.

Dancegeist

A new, free, online publication for every sector of the dance community. The magazine is meant to be a place to dissolve the lines of separation that so often pit members of the dance community against one another. We believe not in going to a community or person and finding out about their stories, but in letting communities and people tell their own stories. Dancegeist Magazine hopes that by creating space for historically overlooked people to tell their stories, we can create a new dance industry that focuses on the power of community and political engagement.
