Center for Ballet and the Arts (CBA) Fellowship Program at New York University 2019 (Fully-funded)
Deadline: December 1, 2018
The Center for Ballet and the Arts at New York University (NYU) is an international research institute for artists and scholars of ballet and its related arts and sciences. It exists to inspire new ideas and new ballets, expanding the way we think about the art form’s history, practice, and performance in the 21st century.
The CBA Fellowship Program invites artists and scholars to The Center to develop self-directed projects that expand the way they think about ballet. Fellows come from a multitude of disciplines and bring a breadth of experience to the residency. They are not required to be experts in ballet. The fellowship provides time for fellows to do their work and a place to share their expertise and thinking with one another.
