Dance/NYC Junior Committee Application

Dance/NYC Junior Committee - 2018/2019 New Member Application

Thank you for your interest in joining the Dance/NYC Junior Committee (JComm)! Please complete the following form to apply for the 2018-2019 term.


All applications must be received by 11:59 pm on Friday May 11, 2018 to be considered.






The Dance/NYC Junior Committee is an organized volunteer group of dance leaders, ages 21-30, based in New York City. JComm members participate in a range of professional development activities and engage in critical dialogue about the New York dance field, with a focus on equity, inclusion, and advocacy. Members can expect to find a supportive network of peers in the dance field and enriching dialogue about dance in New York City through the lens of their cultural communities.


The 2018/2019 term runs from July 2018 through June 2019. The committee meets the first and third Tuesday of each month from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm (schedule modifications are made when these dates fall on holidays). Members should expect to commit 8-12 hours per month for JComm: 4 hours of in-person meetings, and 4-8 hours of external activities and research.


JComm is involved with several projects during the year. In the 2017-18 term, these included organizing a panel during the Dance/NYC Symposium, hosting a spring Town Hall long table discussion (Labor of Love? A Long Table), coordinating internal professional development sessions, participating in a day-long anti-oppression workshop, and creating and implementing an alumni mentorship program. Projects may vary from term to term.

Why You Should Apply

Junior Committee members past and present have cited their years on the committee as inspiring and beneficial — both personally and professionally. Here are just a few of the many highlights of service:

  • Presenting or facilitating panels or discussions at events such as the Dance/NYC Symposium, City Council hearings, and Junior Committee Town Halls

  • Participating in candid and stimulating discussions that move the dance field forward

  • Becoming a part of a networked group willing to share skills, resources, experience, and contacts with one another

*Please note: JComm does not accept applications from candidates who will be undergraduate students during their year on the Committee. If you are graduating in May, you are welcome to apply. JComm also does not accept applications from candidates who will turn 31 during their year of service.



Application Process:

All applications will be read by all current members of the Junior Committee. Following the application review, selected applicants will be invited to a 30-minute in-person interview with two current JComm members. These interviews will take place between May 21, 2018 and June 4, 2018. Interview locations will be coordinated between the applicant and the committee members and will incorporate any disability accommodations requested by the applicant. The full Junior Committee will reconvene following the interviews and make a final decision on which applicants to accept. All applicants will be notified of their application status by June 8, 2018. The number of available positions in the committee varies from year to year depending on the expected workload for the upcoming year and the number of returning committee members.
