The D•O•T (Dance • Opera • Theatre) Policy
includes terms and conditions for a range of small-scale dance, opera
and theatre engagements. It also outlines how to engage Equity members at educational institutions. Provisions common to engagements across all three types of work appear at the beginning and each specialty genre has a separate schedule for each at the end of the Policy. The Opera Schedule addresses necessary rehearsal hour differences and provides a list of appropriate minimum fees.
includes provisions for non-standard engagements, touring, simplified payment options, including direct deposit and email transfer, and recording provisions. The D•O•T
took effect January 4, 2016 and has been extended to Sunday, December 9, 2018. A one percent (1%) increase to minimum fees and other monetary amounts will come into effect on Monday, September 3, 2018.
