Thw NYU Center for Ballet and the Arts Fellowship Program 2020-2021 is now open for interested candidates to apply. The Center for Ballet and the Arts (CBA) is an international research institute for scholars and artists of ballet and its related arts and sciences. It exists to inspire new ideas and new dances, expanding the way we think about the art form’s history, practice, and performance in the 21st century.
The CBA Fellowship Program awards residencies to artists and scholars across disciplines to work on projects that expand the way they think about the history, practice, and performance of dance. Applicants are not required to be experts in dance but must have an interest in engaging with the art form. The fellowship provides space, financing, and time to pursue rigorous work. CBA Fellows are encouraged to ask questions and take risks. They gain colleagues they would not otherwise encounter. These engagements between artists and scholars, two communities that do not often intersect, strengthen and deepen the work of both.
