Overview

The Center for Ballet and the Arts at New York University Fellowship Program offers residencies to scholars and artists of all disciplines to develop projects that expand the way we think about the history, practice, and performance of dance. Past fellows have come from wide-ranging disciplines such as history, design, philosophy, visual arts, and more. Fellows are not required to be experts in ballet or dance, but must have an interest in engaging with the art.

The fellowship provides space, a stipend, and the time to pursue rigorous work. Fellows also gain new colleagues and a broad community of scholars and artists, two communities that do not often meet.

Applications for 2021-2022 fellowships will be open from September 15, 2020 at 9:00am EST through November 2, 2020 at 9:00am EST. Applicants will be notified in March 2021.
 

Fellowship Award Includes:

  • Stipend of $750/week
  • Access to CBA’s community of 150+ artists and scholars
  • Use of CBA’s dance studio, offices, and conference rooms
  • Housing, as needed and available
  • Round trip transportation to and from New York City
  • J-1 visa facilitation

Expectations

  • Work at CBA for the majority of your residency.
  • Present your work in a seminar to current and alumni fellows.
  • Attend CBA events, including weekly seminars and CBA’s public programs.
  • Give and receive feedback, collaborate, and otherwise engage with your cohort.
  • Submit feedback on your fellowship as requested.
    • Note: At this time, The Center cannot commit to additional funding for collaborators. If a fellow decides to work with collaborators (e.g. designers, musicians, dancers), the fellow is expected to pay those collaborators out of his or her own fellowship.

Duration

Fellowship timing and duration depend on individual fellow needs and project scopes. Prior residencies have run between four and sixteen weeks. The residency must occur during NYU’s academic year (September 2021 – May 2022).

 

Eligibility

  • Scholar or artist* pursuing an original project related to dance.
  • Applicants applying with scholarly projects (e.g. journal articles, monographs) must have a Ph.D.
  • Applicants must show exceptional promise and/or have demonstrated significant accomplishments in their field. We encourage applicants from all career stages to apply.
  • Dance expertise is not required.
  • Students (as of September 2021) are not eligible.
  • NYU faculty are welcome and encouraged to apply. Payment structure may vary based on faculty appointment and school.

*Past fellows have come from dozens of disciplines as wide-ranging as history, design, philosophy, visual arts, religion, literature, and more.

The CBA Fellowship Program does not support:

  • Projects in arts administration 
  • Projects focused on the applicant’s personal memoir or autobiography
  • Projects involving giving dance classes 
  • Projects reviewing prior work, such as:
    • editing, digitizing, or organizing archives 
    • editing films or book anthologies

 

Application materials

The application should reflect the applicant’s genuine aspirations and expertise. We expect scholars and artists to each demonstrate different strengths that are reflective of their training. Project proposals are not required to involve both scholarly and artistic inquiry. Successful proposals will focus on the project’s essential research questions and will be clear, concise, and free of jargon.

Applications will be open from September 15, 2020 at 9:00am EST through November 2, 2020 at 9:00am EST. Applicants will be notified in March 2021.

Please contact nyucba@gmail.com with questions.

Mark DeGarmo Dance seeks applicants for the 2020-2021 season of its Virtual Salon Performance Series, a showcase of original artistic works-in-progress with a facilitated audience response session. Performing artists are invited to apply via the above GoogleForm by Saturday, August 1st, 11:55PM. All Virtual Performances will be held on Zoom.

Founded in 2010, MDD's Salon Performance Series provides an opportunity to view and engage with original performing arts and dance works-in-progress of guest artists. The 2019-2020 season featured 51 artists/performers in 9 salons, the final 3 of which were held virtually on Zoom. 

The series highlights artists and performing art and dance forms underrepresented in traditional and commercial performing arts venues nationally and internationally. Artists from these underrepresented groups, genres, and spaces are especially encouraged to apply.

Dr. Mark DeGarmo curates the series and facilitates audience response sessions during each installment by adapting Liz Lerman’s Critical Response Process. DeGarmo guides discourse among the artists and audience members and encourages the public to actively participate in the development of original works-in-progress.

Originally housed in Mark DeGarmo Dance Studio Theater 310 at The Clemente Center, where MDD has been an anchor resident member nonprofit organization since 2001, MDD’s Salon Performance Series works to support the Clemente’s mission, and its determination “to operate in a multicultural and inclusive manner, housing and promoting artists and performance events that fully reflect the cultural diversity of the Lower East Side and the city as a whole.”

His work has been recognized with performing arts awards and honors from the Martha Hill Dance Fund, the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program, the U.S. Department of State, and The White House. His transcultural transdisciplinary commitment includes writing “Transdisciplinary Performative Improvisation” for the University of Colima Mexico’s textbook Teaching Choreographic Composition from a Transdisciplinary Focus (2020 Spanish publication pending). He is also an artist-scholar of Creative Agency Australia. Las Fridas, Mark DeGarmo’s original duet inspired by Mexican painter and revolutionary Frida Kahlo, was called “Genius,” “Wonderfully in your face,” and “Frightening… in a way great art always should be,” by New York audiences in November 2019. Melanie Brown of Stagebuddy.com deemed DeGarmo “a gladiator in various arenas."

Use quick cuts, speed ramps… circle the dance, invite the camera inside of the dance.

Try to capture the feeling of the dance… 

Avoid using only frontal coverage!

Feel free to express exactly how you feel about what you're going through — what we're all going through…

When is the deadline?  With no end in sight to this lockdown, we are extending this challenge indefinitely.
