New York Dancers Committee

The New York Dancers Committee examines the role of dancers in motion pictures, television, and commercials. It recognizes the needs of dancers by seeking improvement of existing contracts that professional dancers are employed under through collective bargaining. The New York Dancers Committee is committed to all issues affecting dancers working under SAG-AFTRA jurisdiction.
