The Dance Program supports quality programming and efforts to build audiences for the art form throughout the state. It also seeks to bolster the New York State dance community by supporting service groups that provide administrative and technical assistance to dance artists and organizations. NYSCA has a long-standing commitment to fund dance in all its diversity and stylistic breadth, to embrace the new, the emerging, and the experimental, to provide support for mid-career choreographers and their companies, and to sustain the major ballet and modern institutions. Dance Program funding fosters the creative process by supporting rehearsal time and space for choreographers, enabling the production of new work.
Dance organizations which may apply include: ballet, traditional modern and avant-garde, ethnic, jazz, and historical dance companies, dance service organizations, consortia serving management needs, and collectives of individual choreographers.
For Dance Commissions, see the guidelines for Individual Artists.
Organizations requesting support for mime/movement theatre performances should refer to the Theatre guidelines.
