NEFA Announces Dance Touring Awards

$280,000 TO SUPPORT TOURS ACROSS THE U.S IN 2016-2017

The New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) has awarded $280,000 through the National Dance Project (NDP) to support touring by dance companies in 2016-2017. NEFA’s National Dance Project fuels the creation of new dance works and brings the work of the most compelling dance artists of our time to audiences across the nation.

Eight dance companies have received NDP Touring Awards of up to $35,000 each that will support U.S. tours of the awarded projects during an 18 month tour period of June 1, 2016-November 30, 2017.

Organizations interested in presenting any of these projects should contact the tour coordinators prior to March 7, 2016, in order to be considered for funding through NDP Presentation Grants.
