It is time that we as dancers get financially healthy. We need to empower ourselves around our ability to earn. The time is now. As a form, dance is behind most of the other artistic disciplines regarding financial development and prosperity. We need to revolutionize our sense of worth, earning ability and value from a place of lack and desperation to a knowing that there is enough money for us as artists. Our form is valuable and the way to create sustainability for the brave souls who have followed their passion for movement is to learn how to earn.
We can start today by valuing ourselves and by paying our dancers for their time, sweat, and artistry. If there seems to be no way - we will create it together. United as a community, we have the power to shift this perception on a global scale. I am standing for change now - are you?
