Licensing Requirements

When requesting to license a work from The Doris Humphrey Foundation for Dance, please send your request at least 1 year before the performance date.

If you are not certain about the work you would like to request, the Foundation will be happy to advise and direct you to an appropriate work once submitted materials are reviewed based on the size and make-up of your company.

The license fees and royalties are based on the organizational structure and budget of each company, school, university, or presenter.

All licensed works require a Doris Humphrey Foundation-approved regisseur to stage the work and see it through to the premiere. Regisseurs are contracted separately from the Foundation license. The Foundation can assist you in determining the most suited repetiteur to stage the work for you.

Please note that there are approximately 23 works that are currently active through the Foundation. Others have been revived and may be staged with the assistance of the restorers. Still, others are rarely performed but are capable of being staged. Additional works are available for licensing through the Dance Notation Bureau.
