New for 2020-2021
Membership fees are based on your gross annual earnings from the previous tax year as a dancer/interpreter, including all performance-related activity (i.e., creation, rehearsal and performance). For example, if paying fees for the 2020/2021 membership year, the amount is based on your 2019 performance-related income. You will be asked to select a pay bracket from the fees list that corresponds to these gross annual earnings. Normally, the annual membership fee minimum is $75 and maximum is $250. This year, we are offering a $50 membership for those in the lowest bracket in recognition of the impact the COVID – 19 has had on the live performance community. The $25 discount may apply to membership fees over the minimum level and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Finally, members in financial need may request a payment plan to remit their fees.
