Homing in on the creative process, the Pew Charitable Trusts announced yesterday a new funding program to support the development of new choreography by artists in the Philadelphia area.
The Philadelphia Repertory Development Initiative will make grants totaling $440,000 over three years. An additional $185,000 will go toward the cost of administering the program.
A total of 14 grants will be awarded each year, starting Sept. 1. Professional dance companies may apply for grants up to $20,000 per year, and individual choreographers and dancers will qualify for as much as $10,000 a year.
