The results of a research on social, economical and artistic aspects of the sector

The Federal University of Bahia (UFBA) and the Fundação Nacional de Artes (FUNARTE) published in 2016 the results of the study “Mapeamento da Dança: diagnóstico da dança em oito capitais de cinco regiões do Brasil” (Dance mapping: diagnosis of dance in eight Brazilian regions), research that has been possible thanks to the technical cooperation of both institutions and coordinated by Dr. Lúcia Matos (PPGDança – UFBA) and Dr. Gisele Nussbaumer (Pós-Cultura – UFBA).

The research aimed to identify dance agents (individuals, groups and institutions) that work in training and artistic production while analysing social, economical and artistic aspects of the sector in 8 cities Curitiba, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Goiânia, Salvador, Recife, Fortaleza and Belém. The study has involved 25 researchers, a technician and 59 university students.

A rich resource on the Brazilian dance sector

The results of the study include a digital publication with a diagnosis of the sector in the already mentioned cities taking into consideration different configurations and realities of dance in Brazil and a database including information about 4.570 individuals, 677 groups and 460 institutions.

The results of the study take the form of a publication (1.986 pages) which is available here: www.mapeamentonacionaldadanca.com.br
