"The Contract Behind the Curtain: A Glimpse into the San Francisco Ballet Dancerís Contract" By Robin Gross (29 February 2008)


The San Francisco Ballet is one of the finest ballet companies in the world and the oldest company in the United States. The company produces its ballets through the utilization of collective bargaining agreements with the American Guild of Musical Artists (AGMA).

The Basic Agreement between AGMA and the San Francisco Ballet details many of the key terms of every ballet dancerís contract with the company. The AGMA Basic Agreement is the collective bargaining agreement that all dancers with the SF Ballet sign when they join the company. It sets out the minimum terms and conditions that all dancers (and other artists) employed with the company are entitled to receive (like minimum salaries and benefits, publicity issues, and minimum health and safety standards)
