About the Boston Dancemakers Residency
Boston’s most comprehensive residency program for choreographers, dancers, and other movement artists, the Boston Dancemakers Residency is designed to support new work from conception to performance. Produced through a partnership between Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) and Boston Dance Alliance (BDA), this intensive Dancemakers Residency is unique in scope and vision, with the intent to be transformational rather than transactional.
Choreographers participating in this competitive program receive support for research, development, rehearsal, production support, marketing and mentorship. The residency provides a regional three-day retreat, eight weeks of intensive studio time, access to discounted rehearsal space, a choreographer stipend, rehearsal pay for up to six dancers, and a showcase of the work created.
