Why does Dance/USA support ArtsReady?

"Hurricane Sandy was devastating for many dance companies and theaters – lost rehearsal time, cancelled shows, destroyed offices, damaged sets, costumes and archival materials, and lost income. ArtsReady provides a critical resource for arts organizations in both planning how to rebound from crises, large or small, and also offering aid through the Battle Buddy network. We are thrilled to be a Partner with ArtsReady and provide this valuable service to Dance/USA members."

— Amy Fitterer, Executive Director of Dance/USA
