Dance/USA Fellowships to Artists (DFA) Program Cycle 3
Accepting Letters of Interest Summer 2024

Dance/USA announces the next round of Dance/USA Fellowships to Artists (DFA). Dance/USA has received $1.9 million from the Doris Duke Foundation to continue the program for a third round. A singular national regranting program impacting the dance community, DFA supports dance and movement based artists from across the U.S. and its territories who work at the intersection of social and embodied practices. DFA encompasses a wide variety of modalities of social transformation through dance, which typically do not fit into established models of arts funding. This includes community-building and culture-bearing practices, healing and storytelling practices, activism and representational justice practices, and more.

Now in its third iteration, the DFA program remains one of the few regranting programs available to independent U.S. dance artists with an unrestricted financial award. Fellowship awards of $31,000 will be given to at least 25 individual artists to be used at their own discretion.

In addition, the Artist Fellows will have the option to participate in an emergent programming process that honors the Fellows’ choices around connection, rest, and desire. The facilitated process will be self-directed by the Fellows and administratively supported by Dance/USA. As with Round Two of DFA, the program plans to provide financial support to underwrite photography, family care, one-on-one consultations, and other professional development needs during the Fellowship period.

Applications for this program will open in the summer of 2024. Interested artists will apply via Letter of Inquiry by the end of the summer, and fifty finalists will then be invited to submit a full application in the spring of 2025. The Fellowship year will take place from the fall of 2025 to the fall 2026.

For questions, please contact Haowen Wang, Dance/USA Director of Regranting, via email or 202-460-9215. ASL and spoken language interpretation services are available upon request.
