The CUNY Dance Initiative (CDI) is a new residency program providing rehearsal and performance space to New York City choreographers and dance companies. With lead funding from the New York Community Trust, the CUNY Dance Initiative offers subsidies to participating CUNY colleges to assist with artist fees, rehearsal expenses, and production, marketing, and administrative costs.
In 2015, 11 CUNY colleges in all five boroughs are hosting 26 residencies. In addition to providing rehearsal space for artists, the residency projects include master classes and open rehearsals specifically for students, plus showings and performances open to the public.
The application for 2016 residencies will open September 10 at 10am and close October 1 at 11:59pm. All applications must be submitted online.
