Chapter 9 presents data from a larger mixed method empirical study that investigated the professional lives of administrative leaders in postsecondary dance programs in the United States, with the purpose of developing a status report on administrative leadership, with particular attention to gender. The study employed reviews of literature in postsecondary dance leadership and administration, analysis of data assembled annually by Higher Education Arts Data Services (HEADS) in conjunction with the National Association of Schools of Dance (NASD) from 1994–2014, and findings from the authors’ mixed method study of dance administrators (n=75) in postsecondary institutions, including an extensive online survey that generated quantitative and qualitative data from participants across the United States. Survey data included information about demographics, workload, responsibilities and salary; support and work satisfaction; administrator purpose, strengths and challenges; influential experiences and people; quality of professional lives, and work-life balance. Narrative comments based on open-ended questions are presented. When appropriate, gender asymmetries and divergences are discussed.
