Applications Are Open for Dance/USA Fellowships to Artists

From Dance/USA –

Dance/USA invites initial applications from dance artists for Dance/USA Fellowships to Artists (DFA). One of the few regranting programs available to independent artists with an unrestricted financial award, DFA supports dance and movement-based artists from across the U.S. and its territories who work at the intersection of social and embodied practices. DFA recognizes the wide variety of ways in which people engage in social transformation through dance, which often do not fit into established models of arts funding. This includes community-building and culture-bearing practices, healing and storytelling practices, activism and representational justice practices, and more.

DFA will award $31,000 to at least 25 individual artists, to be used at their own discretion. Artists are invited to submit an initial application by Thursday, August 15, 2024 at 6:00pm ET. Application support and coaching are available. Access the DFA program overview and guidelines.
