In addition to financial, administrative, production, and marketing support, artists in residence receive professional video of their work for archival and future grant application purposes.
Choreographer applications should be emailed to email@example.com and are due January 12th. Dancer auditions will be held on January 17th at 8:00pm at Studio Pulse Center for Dance.
