Produced by the Observatoire de la culture et des communications du Québec of the Institut de la statistique du Québec with the cooperation of organizations committed to the development of artistic occupations, this publication is devoted to professional Québec artists in the field of dance. It combines the data and analyses required to determine the conditions of practice of that occupation in Québec.
The second in a series of surveys on artistic and communication occupations, this study, using statistical data gathered in a census, provides various profiles of Québec dancers and choreographers. It contains, in particular, data on the types of dance that characterize their artistic practice, the working time they devote to dance, the income they derive from it, their personal income and their social protection.
Not only does this monograph give an overview of the profession of dance artist, but it also makes it possible, through the relevance of the themes discussed, to understand the whole reality and complexity of identity as a dance artist.
