Town Hall: CUNY Dance Initiative: Connecting Local Dancemakers with CUNY Colleges
The second year of the CUNY Dance Initiative is under way, awarding 26 New York City dance companies/choreographers residencies at 11 CUNY colleges in 2015. Funding from the New York Community Trust and the Mertz Gilmore Foundation opens the doors of CUNY campuses to local choreographers and dance companies, simultaneously supporting the growth of professional artists and CUNY students by assisting the host colleges with artist fees, rehearsal expenses, and marketing efforts. Join Dance/NYC as Wendy Perron, author of Through the Eyes of a Dancer and former editor in chief of Dance Magazine, hosts a discussion with five awarded artists at the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center in Long Island City.
Event is free! RSVP here.
