Again, look in the yellow pages or ask around. There is also a
listing in the back of Dance Magazine every month. A project is in the
works to compile a directory of schools for the Dancers' Archive. There's
no telling, at this point, when it will be ready or how comprehensive it
will be. But you can also post that question to this group; that's one of
the things this group is for.
Another alternative, if you are looking for a school outside your own area,
is to use the nationwide Yellow Pages, available on CD-ROM at many public
libraries. Look for Dance Instruction and copy the names. You may be
able to get further information on schools from Dance/USA. Bonnie Brooks
Dance/USA has listings and Member Profiles on all of its member
companies available (there is a cost for the Member Profiles), as
well as local and regional dance service organizations. Address

If there are particular cities you're interested in, we can also look
at our entire database of dance companies (including non-members) to
give you information about dance activity in particular cities. We
don't have extensive information about non-members, but either way it
would be a start.
You can also consult colleges and universities in your area. Dance
Magazine publishes an annual College Guide, usually announced in their
