NATIONAL DANCE PROJECT BOOSTS TOURING COMPANIES.
"These artists will connect with communities in all parts of the country to share an amazing breadth and caliber of dance" said National Dance Project Manager Rebecca Blunk. Touring groups include the Mark Morris Dance Group, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, Garth Fagan Dance, Elizabeth Streb/STREB, Rennie Harris PureMovement, the Pat Graney Company, the Joe Goode Performance Group, the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble, and the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company.
The National Dance Project will fund both the production and touring of new work, and help performers to engage their audiences through workshops as well as performances. Presenters in thirty-six states, from Hawaii to Kansas to Maine, will receive the grants. Selected companies are based throughout the U.S., along with one company from China. Of the projects receiving touring funds, twenty will also receive National Dance Project grants for the production of new work.
