Dance Artist in Residence

The application deadline for this opportunity has passed.

Application Deadline: June 5, 2019

The Dance Artist in Residence program is offered specifically for dance artists to have focused time for the creation and development of new works. The residency is designed for artists in the initial creation phase of new work, which they’ll begin to create in our studio spaces.

This program is designed to bring a number of dance companies to work on their respective projects on campus at the same time. Participants will have the opportunity to share work in progress with other visiting dance artists during this initial creation phase.

What does the Program Offer?

This residency offers a range of dance studio spaces depending on participants’ needs and availability. Artists will be provided with basic technical support, but will not have access to theatre production spaces. More information about our facilities can be found here.

Artists are expected to be creating work during this residency but are not expected to give a final performance or showing. Participants are encouraged to share their work through informal showings, but this is not required.

Who Should Apply?

We invite project proposals from individual artists, artistic collectives, and companies. Artists at various stages of practice are encouraged to apply, whether they are at the conceptual stage or ready for creation, development, and refinement of a new work.
