The Virginia B. Toulmin Fellowship for Women Leaders in Dance is a unique fellowship designed for women choreographers and composers that promotes broader gender equity in the field of dance. These fellows work on projects that expand the way we think about the history, practice, and performance of dance. There is no expectation of a finished product. 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.
