DANZ FORUMS IN AUCKLAND AND WELLINGTON
Dance Work Forums – essential information
For dance professionals eg; freelance dancers, teachers, choreographers and those working in a company or on projects, etc.
These forums will look at critical issues to do with dance work:
The conditions of dance work, codes of practice, contracts and what they should cover, collective bargaining, the role of an agent, the role of a union and why a dancer might join one, minimum rates of pay and a comparison with Australia.
This is an opportunity to hear from DANZ, Frances Walsh from the performers union NZ Actors Equity/MEAA and Shona McCullagh from performers’ agency Human Garden.

Working Conditions and Pay Survey – DANZ
DANZ is conducting essential research on the conditions of work and rates of pay across New Zealand dance. The survey form is now on the DANZ website and we urge you to fill it in. The more replies we get, the clearer the picture we will have of pay rates and the more use this will be when setting your own fees or negotiating pay.
