Analysis of dance access in Wichita, Kansas
Abstract

Dance is an art form that has grown and developed throughout history. Today structured dance classes can be seen in many settings and in many varieties. While many studies have looked at access to art and recreational activities across the United States few have looked at access to dance, specifically when compared to the demographics (income and race/ethnicity). This research uses publicly available information to look at dance opportunities in Wichita, Kansas a metropolitan area with a population of three hundred, ninety-seven thousand, and five hundred people The study focuses on where classes located in Wichita geographically, the average cost of classes, the demographics (specifically race/ethnicity and income levels) of the neighborhoods the classes are located and if there is a connection between the demographics of the neighborhoods and the number of dance class locations available.
