New York City Center Choreography Fellowship

Launched in 2011, the New York City Center Choreography Fellowship supports choreographers at critical stages in their careers. The Fellowship, which provides three choreographers with a creative home at City Center for one year, reflects City Center’s long history of nurturing dance makers, from George Balanchine to Christopher Wheeldon. During each yearlong fellowship, the choreographers receive a generous stipend in addition to rehearsal space in the City Center studios and a performance opportunity at City Center. They also have full access to City Center’s administrative expertise in fundraising, finance, technology and marketing. Head to our blog to hear former Choreography Fellows talk about the program.

Special thanks to The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for its support of this program.


Meet the 2016-2017 Choreography Fellows!
NYCC Fellows
Liz Gerring’s works are characterized by their intense physicality and intricate choreography, in which movement is evolved from cause and effect rather than storytelling. Pam Tanowitz is known for her unflinchingly post-modern treatment of classical dance vocabulary. Michelle Dorrance is a tap dancer, performer, choreographer, teacher, and director who recently appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” In September, the three Choreography Fellows got together for a conversation with writer Nancy Dalva about the gift of space, the sugar rush of performing at Fall for Dance, and why formalism might be a dying art.
