As of 2022, we are excited to extend this residency to a week long, all-inclusive residency - offering travel from NYC, accommodations, 1800SF of rehearsal space, artist stipend and a community showing at the end. Artists selected for this residency are invited to present the finished work at the Dance Gallery Festival. The residency will culminate in a showing of work followed by a Q&A with the choreographer.

A week long residency in Livingston Manor, NY from October 15-22 including:

  • $3000 Artist stipend

  • ​Exclusive access to an 1800 square foot rehearsal space for the entire week.

  • Housing near downtown Livingston Manor

  • Transportation from NYC to Livingston Manor

  • Invitation to show the work at a future Dance Gallery Festival in NYC

  • If desired, mentorship and feedback during the residency from our Young Artist Advisory Board and/or the director of festival, Astrid von Ussar

The selected artist will be asked to have:

  • 1 community class for the children of the local elementary school 

  • Open rehearsals through out the week

  • End of residency showing (30-40 mins of material, can include rep in addition to work made during the residency) + Q&A

Interested choreographers should provide a sample of past work and a written proposal for the residency. Please include a short statement about how this residency would benefit you and why it is important at the stage of your development as an artist. Once the application has closed, we will select five applicants for a final round, and those finalists will have an interview with the Artistic Director (to be scheduled either in-person or via Zoom) before we select the residency recipient. Finalists will be contacted by email.
