Our core program at DLNY is the Lab Cycle in which we grant dance makers one week of free exploration time in large pole-free space with a company of 12 professional dancers who are secured with contracts, competitive salaries, and worker's comp insurance.
At DLNY, we do not dictate what you explore. No idea is off-limits (within reason) and the grant comes with “no strings attached”. Choreographers are also provided with a Rehearsal Director/Company Manager to oversee the daily workings of the room and relieve them of unnecessary administrative stresses.
Currently, DLNY operates 3 Lab Cycles per year - Spring (Feb/Mar), Summer(May/June), and Fall (Oct/Nov). We invite choreographers of all backgrounds, ages, genders, races, and experience levels to apply for the DLNY Lab Cycle grant. Please fill out the short form below.
