Board and Councils

The DTRC is governed by three groups, each possessing unique skills and perspectives.

The Board of Directors is made up of distinguished professionals from within and outside the dance community, and provides ongoing leadership and strategic direction.
The Advisory Council is comprised of a wide range of business and community leaders who are available to act as resources or consultants on an as-needed basis.

The Artistic Resource Committee is comprised of a number of artistic directors and dance community leaders and provides information on the dance milieu and feedback on DTRC services.
