The CUNY Dance Initiative (CDI) is a new residency program that opens the doors of CUNY campuses to New York City choreographers and dance companies. Developed in response to the shortage of affordable rehearsal space in New York City, CDI aims to support local artists, enhance college students’ cultural life and education, and build new audiences for dance at CUNY performing arts centers.
In 2016, 12 CUNY colleges in all five boroughs are hosting 23 artists, from emerging choreographers to established dance companies. In addition to providing space for artists to create work, the residencies include master classes and open rehearsals specifically for students, plus showings and performances for the public.
We will be accepting applications for winter/spring 2017 residencies via our website from April 28-May 17, 2016.
Application Information Session: May 4 at 6:30 RSVP
