Dance/NYC Announces Recipients of Second Round Coronavirus Dance Relief Fund for Dance Making Organizations.
The dance service organization Dance/NYC is pleased to announce the 56 recipients of the second iteration of its Coronavirus Dance Relief Fund for Dance Making Organizations and Groups.
"We are proud to have facilitated support for so many dance making organizations and groups across two rounds of the relief fund. The program was created to help to alleviate immediate pressures due to COVID-19, prioritizing those most impacted by white supremacy and systemic oppression. While we acknowledge there is still work to be done in actualizing equitable grantmaking practices across the sector, we are so proud to be contributing to those efforts," said Alejandra Duque Cifuentes, executive director of Dance/NYC. "We are particularly excited to include dance making organizations with budgets under $25,000 for the first time in one of our regranting programs. We have long recognized, and named, that dance makers with operating budgets below $25,000 also need support, so we are enthused to provide resources to this segment of the field with many thanks to our funders."
