We are incredibly honored and excited to share that Keshet Dance Company has been named a 2023 National Dance Project Production Grantee!
The National Dance Project is one of the country’s major sources of funding and field building for dance, supporting the creation and sharing of new projects. The 12 NDP Advisors, made up of artists, presenters, producers, arts administrators, and cultural strategists, selected these projects out of over 167 competitive applications; 75% of the awardees are first-time NDP recipients. Each artist/company receives $45,000 for the creation of the new dance project as well as $10,000 in unrestricted general operating support. Additionally, each grantee receives $11,500 to support Production Residencies for Dance and/or Community Engagement for their project.
