Solving Space Issues
for NYC Dance Artists
New York City choreographers and dance companies are invited to apply for residencies via the CUNY Dance Initiative (CDI). Designed to take advantage of underutilized facilities while integrating New York City’s dance community with the public university system, the CUNY Dance Initiative provides local artists with rehearsal and performance space on 13 CUNY campuses across the boroughs.
In March 2019, CDI celebrates five years as a groundbreaking model for support in the dance field with its 5th Year Fest.
“New York City dance has just been blessed with a brilliantly sensible project.”
– Wendy Perron, Dance Magazine
