The Dance Data Project™ launched today with the first of a series of reports documenting gender inequity in leadership positions and pay among the 50 largest ballet companies in the United States. George Balanchine, the legendary Artistic Director and Founder of the New York City Ballet once said, “Everywhere else men are first. But in ballet, it’s the woman.” However in 2019, DDP™ found men are first in ballet when it comes to leadership positions and pay even though the ballet world is overwhelming populated by women and they are the economic drivers as well.
