The Jerome Robbins Dance Division Research Fellowship


Due May 15, 2020

The Jerome Robbins Dance Division Research Fellowship is now accepting applications.

As a non-verbal art form, dance has always been an important part of the immigrant story. It has enabled communities with different languages to find commonalities and essential moments of human connection. Dance has enshrined and protected the unique and special cultural modes of expression of different communities and has also expanded and adapted its vocabulary across centuries to redefine our sense of self through the intersectionality of multiple cultures.

The Jerome Robbins Dance Division invites applications from scholars and practitioners interested in investigating the theme of dance and immigration.

Specifically, we are excited to learn how the histories contained within our archive can open up dialogue that pertains to our present.
