Combining how-to information with voices of working artists,Poor Dancers Almanacis an essential resource tool and source of inspiration for all independent artists-choreographers, performance artists, dancers producers, managers. Created in 1975 and revised again in 1984 this handbook has come to serve as one of the most crucial references for the arts community. In the most up-to-date and comprehensive edition yet, a broad range of issues affecting performers and producers is addressed, interwoven with newly added, more personal contributions from major figures in the performance world.

Although centered on New York theAlmanacincludes lists of resources and contacts for many other states-California, Washington D.C, Illinois, Minnesota, North Carolina, Texas, Florida, and Ohio.
