In 2019, CASE worked with Dance Source Houston (DSH) to release a report on the state of Houston dance. Based on a 2018 needs assessment surveying the individuals and organizations that make up the dance community in the Greater Houston region, the study sheds light on the state of the diverse Houston dance sector in terms of economics, programmatic activities, professional and business skills, and affordability of needs. From January through June 2018, DSH collected survey responses from individual and organizational respondents. The surveys were facilitated by the Third Ward’s Sankofa Research Institute, with input from community members throughout the process as part of a community-based participatory research methodology. CASE completed the data analysis and developed a report that summarized DSH and other relevant stakeholders' recommendations and recommendations.
