NYSCA Support for Artists

July 17

NYSCA offers support to choreographers in any dance genre for the creation of a new work.
Grants are directed solely toward a choreographer’s creative fee, exclusive of production expenses or other costs related to the project. While collaborations are welcome, only the principal artist may receive funding. These awards may either be commissioned by the sponsoring organization or be an artist-initiated new work.

Dance companies may commission revivals, reconstructions of existing works or new works by guest choreographers. A guest choreographer is defined as one who does not have a permanent or ongoing relationship with the company as a resident choreographer.

Choreographer-led companies or collectives may apply ONLY for NYSCA Support for Organizations OR for NYSCA Support for Artists unless the requested commission is for a work by a guest choreographer.


  • Narrative application response document (referto page 16).
  • Résumé of the choreographer/re-stager, limited to one page.
  • Work Samples: unedited mediawork samples of the choreographer’s recent work and one recent work sample of the host dance company (if appropriate), totaling no more than 20 minutes. Each media work sample must be provided as a live URL link. To submit URLs, please create a Word or PDF file with a list of URLs. Each work sample URL listed must include the name of artist/company, work titles, year of creation and event date. URLs cannot be password protected and must remain live until 12/31/2024. NYSCA is not responsible for any broken, inactive or password protected links.
  • A copy of the letter of agreement between the artist and sponsoring organization.
