Dance/NYC and its program partner Gibney are pleased to announce the second iteration of the Disability. Dance. Artistry. Residency Program, made possible by the generous support of the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation.
Dance/NYC will award in-person and digital residencies to up to ten (10) disabled dance artists and/or integrated dance companies led by people with disabilities at Gibney from December 6, 2021 through February 26, 2022. The purpose of the residency program is to expand opportunities for dancers with disabilities, including spinal cord injury (SCI) and other impairments, and to advance accessibility and equity for disabled dance artists within the larger dance, residency, and presenting communities.
