What teachers have to say:

The Current Status of Dance Education in US Schools

All 50 states have adopted arts standards; however, dance is extremely far behind in fulfilling those expectations due to:

> Lack of access

> Lack of opportunity   

The statistics below are based on the 14 states in the USA that reported arts data in the 2018-2019 school year. This represents 29.6% of the total population of school age children in the USA or 14.9 million students.

 

1%

of students participate in dance classes at school.

Enrollment tends to be focused in urban school districts.

When a school offers dance classes

12.8%

of students, on average, participate.

This number is higher in elementary schools and lower in high schools.

 

47x

more students are enrolled in music and visual arts classes.

(This data is complex and will be updated in late 2022 when more states are expected to report their numbers.)
