Dance Residencies

Think there aren't many residency programs for dance? Think again! There are over 160 residency programs in the U.S. and Canada open to dancemakers, and dozens more around the world. Whether you are a solo choreographer looking for a quiet place to conduct research or a dance company polishing the production of new work, there's a residency program for you.

RESEARCH: find out more about our research, case studies, interviews, and more

The Alliance of Artists Communities' online database of residencies includes detailed information about application deadlines, facilities and equipment, fees or stipends, meals, housing, and more. Search for a residency at www.artistcommunities.org/residencies

Search Tips:

  • For all residencies listed that support dancemakers: under "Major Discipline Areas" check "Dance/Theater"
  • For only those residencies that have dedicated dance studios: under "Studio/Special Equipment" check "Dance/Choreography"
  • For only those residencies that have theater space: under "Studio/Special Equipment" check "Theater"

Don't see a particular residency program in the list? Let us know! We update our residency directory weekly and would love to know about other residency programs. Send an email to info [at] artistcommunities [dot] org.
