St. Louis Ballet wants to join union

With an overwhelming majority of support, the dancers with Saint Louis Ballet have signed cards to form a union and join the American Guild of Musical Artists (AGMA).

Saint Louis Ballet, located in Chesterfield, Mo., employs 21 professional dancers and stages five artistic productions each season. AGMA has officially notified management and said it is hopeful that the company will respect its artists’ wishes and voluntarily recognize their union.

“Dancers are extraordinarily dedicated artists and deserve to have a voice in their working lives. AGMA is here to support the Dancers of Saint Louis Ballet as they take the exciting first steps in their unionizing journey,” said Griff Braun, AGMA’s national organizing director.
