Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Women based in the U.S. often succeed in leading dance organizations by employing unique leadership practices. By examining national statistics to note the complex contexts of funding and support in dance and the diverse leadership styles of women artistic directors and choreographers as described in public scholarship, this article highlights major issues facing women in dance leadership roles and their particular strengths and success strategies. Women in the U.S. exhibit important leadership abilities, styles, and practices in response to their organizations’ unique needs and in the context of U.S. culture and funding requirements; these women leaders have influenced change in society and in dance since the 20th century.
