Grants Available for Dance Companies!



The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation and Young Audiences New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania (YA) are pleased to offer grants to up to three dancers or dance companies who attended the June 25th Dodge Dance Initiative Introductory Seminar. These grants are for further training in the field-tested, standards-based Dodge Dance Initiative curriculum that YA has piloted in schools throughout the state for the past five years.  Last year Freespace Dance, Lustig Dance Theatre and Roxey Ballet Company were awarded grants to train and share the Dodge Dance Initiative curriculum in their partner schools in New Jersey.

dodge_dance_01_thumbIf chosen, you and/or your company will work closely with an expert Young Audiences Dodge Dance Initiative Trainer to prepare to bring this curriculum into the classroom setting. The grants provide funds for participation in additional training sessions, implementation of the curriculum in NJ schools and a follow-up session with YA and your trainer to share your experiences.

Grant awards are dependent upon the number of applicants and size of the project proposed, but will range from $1,000-$7,000.
