Lagging ticket sales, sets stuck on ships: The dance world is struggling to get back on its feet (Washington Post)

Washington Post: Lagging ticket sales, sets stuck on ships: The dance world is struggling to get back on its feet. “…shipping woes are only some of the troubles dance groups face as they get back on the road to perform. Arriving at this point after nearly two years without in-person audiences has been challenging enough, with revenue drying up, salaries reduced or eliminated, all under the persistent health threats unique to dance, with its reliance on bodies moving together in time and space. Training and creative processes have been profoundly strained. Now there are new hurdles. To better understand the pressures facing these artists and how they’ll affect audiences, I spoke with presenters, consultants and company leaders about what’s happening now, and what the longer-term story may be.”
