The Dancers Amplified Global Active Practices Document is the result of months of research, writing, reviewing, countless Zoom calls, Google documents, and the lived experiences of dance artists from around the world. This powerful work is inspired by you, it is crafted for you, and in order to have the greatest impact it needs you. We ask that you step into activism by signing the pledge and amplifying our message. Use your voice to activate other artists in your community. Use your social media platform to reach audiences around the globe. Below you will find captions, hashtags, image content, and resources to act as a megaphone in broadcasting your solidarity. This is an ongoing commitment to fighting the pervasive racism in dance and the world at large - we encourage you to share as much as you are able and comfortable with. As we move towards conversations with leadership it is crucial to be able to demonstrate the collective solidarity of dancers around the world. Dancers Amplified is committed to you - the artist - we need your support.

- ACTIVISM ALERT: I signed the Dancers Amplified Global Active Practices and now you can too! Dancers Amplified is grounded in the potential of a new normal: a radically inclusive and equitably diverse dance world where the critical aspects of an artist's identity empower art, rather than “limit” or “distract” from it. The GAP and other resources provided by DA, are influenced by the experiences, discussions, and research of dancers from around the world. Join us in solidarity as we work towards an elevated dance world that cultivates art through authentic diversity, inclusion, equity and access.
- ACTIVISM ALERT: Dancers Amplified is bridging the GAP between leadership and dance artists to create methods for action that shift current power dynamics and responsibilities. Diversity, equity and inclusion practices are most effective when informed by those who are most affected by them. As artists who have endured microaggressions, blatant racism, physical harm, and mental and emotional trauma, we believe these practices can serve as a catalyst for lasting and pervasive social, cultural, and aesthetic shifts. Read the Dancers Amplified Global Active Practices, sign the pledge, and re-share this post. Together we can lead by example in a world that desperately needs transformative justice and accountability.
- ACTIVISM ALERT: We must all work together to reject the default of exclusion that is currently prevalent within our industry and create a truly equitable environment that welcomes and celebrates the beautifully diverse communities that we aim to unite and enrich. Dismantling white supremacy, capitalism, misogyny, cis-hetero patriarchy, and anti-Black racism is a complex and pervasive process that requires compassion, empathy, and a conscientious understanding of intersectional identities. Read the Dancers Amplified Global Active Practices, sign the pledge, and step into your activism now.
