Established in 1994 to further the recording of dance through awards to current students, alumni, current faculty and emeriti, the fund is also available to visiting artists, researchers, and notators in residence. Approximately $15,000 available annually. Application review will be made in early May by the Dance Notation Bureau Extension Committee.

The purpose of the Dance Preservation Fund is to support projects such as:

• the notation/recording of dances yourself or bringing in a notator and/or videographer
• the checking of notation scores already written
• the staging of dances from score in order to check the score
• the staging of dances for the purpose of recording them through video and/or notation
• research in dance/movement analysis and dance notation
• video recording dance (usually in connection with notating it)
• the teaching/promotion of notation
• editing, updating, copying, etc., scores
• development of computer programs having to do with the above which can involve people from other disciplines; equipment, personnel
• conferences and/or publications involving the above
• subsidizing workshops
• other projects judged by the review committee to be in keeping with the purpose


In preparation for the new Department website to be unveiled later this year, we’ve created a new online Professional Resources Binder<> to replace the Professional Resources page on the current website. To use, select opportunity type from the tag menu on the right. We hope you’ll find it useful!
