DanceMN Survey – Support Us by Sharing Your Thoughts

Since 2011, DanceMN has provided a free weekly newsletter featuring upcoming performances and events, auditions, classes, grant opportunities, and more—with the goal of ensuring all are connected to dance in Minnesota.

In this upcoming season we’re checking in with you, our community of nearly 2,000 dance practitioners and subscribers, so we can better serve your needs. Today, we’re asking you to complete a 5-10-minute survey that will help us understand the different ways you connect to dance, the goals and needs you experience in this community, and areas where DanceMN could provide value.

Later this spring, we’ll also host a series of “town hall” style meetings where we’ll invite deeper discussion.

Thank you to those who have taken the time to complete this survey. This is our last prompt!

Sincerely,
