We are thrilled to announce that our Artistic Director Sean Dorsey has been awarded a Dance/USA Artist Fellowship! Dorsey is one of 31 artists across the US being honored for their dancemaking and activism for social change.
Dance/USA, the national service organization for professional dance, recently announced that Dance/USA Fellowships to Artists (DFA) has awarded $1,000,525 in funding to 31 artists addressing social change. The 31 Dance/USA Artist Fellows were selected through a rigorous review by a peer panel. In this pilot round DFA addresses a decades-long issue in the dance field — the importance of supporting individual artists. DFA was established through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
Sean is so honored to share this honor along with Bay Area luminaries Amara Tabor-Smith, Antoine Hunter, Vanessa Sanchez, Alleluia Panis, Sarah Crowell, Charya Burt, José Navarrate, Mama Naomi Diouf, Patrick Makuakane, and more!
