This is for all dancers of all styles and practices who participate in dance in Anchorage, Alaska. 

Question Title

* 1. In your opinion, what is the Anchorage dance community in general doing well with respect to diversity and inclusion, and/or where is it falling short?

Question Title

* 2. If you would like to share an experience, suggestion, or resource in the next three questions, which category does the experience, suggestion, or resource BEST relate to? You may check more than one and then go on to share more than one experience/suggestion/resource. This will help us organize the information.

Question Title

* 3. If you have been affected by a form of discrimination in the dance community, please share your experience if you are willing - what happened to you and/or what you have personally observed, why this was/is important or impactful for you, how it has made you feel, etc.
Please remember that your experience must be related to diversity and inclusion. Please also remember we ask that you not name specific people, places, or organizations/entities and these details will not be discussed in the Zoom conversation. 

Question Title

* 4. Please share any concrete suggestions you might have to help increase diversity and inclusion in the Anchorage dance community. These suggestions may be for dancers, the wider community, for venues, for studios/schools, or for organizations/foundations, etc. 
Some examples:
1 - "Local institutions and foundations can increase diversity on their boards of directors"
2 - "Dance studios and companies should promote their work not only in affluent/white communities"
3 - "Dance studios and grantmakers can give more scholarships based on potential rather than talent (taking into account access/barriers to formal classes)."
4 - "Social dance teachers can include LGBTQ+ people (and everyone) by using leader/follower terminology when appropriate rather than men/women"
The possibilities are endless. 
Once again, please remember to avoid naming specific people, places, or organizations/entities, as these details will not be discussed in the panel.

Question Title

* 5. Please share any information or resources you might have (websites, blog posts, etc) that we might share with the public that could help draw attention to these issues. 
(Examples- a website listing anti-racist dance teaching resources, or tips for confronting inappropriate behaviors in social dance communities/staying safe, etc.)

Question Title

* 6. Is there anything else you would like to share with the panel?

Question Title

* 7. If you would like to share any information about your personal position with respect to diversity and inclusion (BIPOC, LGBTQ+, heritage, gender, position in the dance community, anything else), you may do so here:

Question Title

* 8. If you would like to receive a follow up e-mail with a summary of the discussion, suggestions, and resources, please enter your e-mail address here. This is optional and your e-mail will not be shared with anyone or added to any mailing list.
