Creation and Touring of New Dance Work Supported
The National Dance Project (NDP), a program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, is widely recognized as one of the country’s major sources of funding for dance. NDP’s signature approach invests in artists to make new work and provides grants to the organizations that present those works on tour in their communities. The program provides a package of support that includes up to $45,000 towards the creation of a new work, approximately $10,000 in general operating support, and up to $35,000 to support a U.S. tour of the work. Production Grants are highly competitive and are awarded to around 20 dance projects each year. The upcoming preliminary application deadline is March 1, 2019.
