Change Has To Start Somewhere!! DA’s goal is not and has never been malicious. We work hard to educate and better the dance community across the board. It is unfortunate that a job paying below DA minimum rates is attached to a beloved industry artist, and while there was no choreographer hired on this job, the casting specs specifically asked for DANCERS to work in a principle role for $250 a day, and that is UNACCEPTABLE.
Our intention is to inform the community with the facts. In no way are we blaming one person, if anything we used this example to show how our SYSTEM IS BROKEN. The change we’re all looking for has to start with the DANCERS. And hopefully with the help of choreographers and agents, we can change business as usual.
@sagaftra confirmed Beyoncé was the artist shooting the music video in question.
The casting call stated:
Role Type: Principle
Looking for models, actors, dancers
Rate $250 + 20% agency
No active choreographer listed on this particular casting call
Any time a dancer is being hired for a principle role in a non-union music video, the rate is the Dancers Alliance minimum of $500 per shoot day.
Our message is about accountability within our community, and that’s what’s needed more than ever!
