The Dance Studio Alliance

The unprecedented collective of diverse dance organizations reimagining the tapestry of the NYC dance community.


Get to Know Us

Dance Studio Alliance NYC (DSA) was initiated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting closures of dance studios across the city. 


DSA is a coalition of dance leaders who work to inform, lobby, unite, and empower the community and dance leaders to better the dance community. 


Through our collaboration, DSA created a comprehensive health guidance handbook for industry professionals to utilize to limit the spread of COVID-19 in reopening, which has been used as a model nationally.


With participating members from 16 influential dance organizations, DSA inspires the dance sector to reimagine the impact of dance studios in their communities and create a tapestry of dance culture in New York City.



The Dance Studio Alliance is composed of studios across New York City’s boroughs working collaboratively to transform NYC’s dance culture. DSA meets monthly to plan for a more equitable and inclusive future for the dance community.
