This first in-depth  study on the dance sector in the country will document the dance landscape of the UAE and will design a comprehensive picture of the dance sector’s history and current situation. It will provide an overview of traditional dances,  existing genres and players of the field, analyse the ecosystems and infrastructure, and will serve as a tool for field development. The work will create a roadmap of history and current landscape of dance across the Emirates.  The planned completion of the study is in December 2022. 

Commissioned by the Arts Center at NYUAD.
