Choreography Fellowship Application 2016
OVERVIEW
The North Carolina Dance Alliance grants the annual NCDA Choreography Fellowship to North Carolina choreographers to support the creation and performance of new work. Through this fellowship, we aim to promote the professionalism and legacy of dance in our state. Fellowship recipients receive a stipend of up to $1,000 to cover the cost of a new work, from inception to premier performance at one of the NCDA's Events. The exact event date and location will be negotiated between the Choreography Fellow and the NCDA. We award one fellowship per year.

ELIGIBILITY
• Applicant may be a choreographer in any dance genre.
• Applicant must be a current member of NCDA.
• Applicant must reside full-time in North Carolina and create the fellowship work in North Carolina.
• Applicant must be at least 18 years of age.
• Past recipients of the fellowship, up to 4 years prior, are not eligible to apply.

DEADLINES & PROJECT PERIOD
Applications and work samples must be received by MARCH 25, 2016. All grant-related activities will take place starting in May 2016, upon award notification, continue through the NCDA Event performance weekend, and will end with the Final Report deadline, no later than the fiscal year end.

WHAT WE FUND
A stipend of up to $1,000 is granted to the fellowship recipient for the creation and performance of a new work. The new work must premiere at our Annual Event Showcase. The recipient is responsible for keeping a detailed budget outlining the projected and actual expenses. If additional support for the work is secured through other grants or funding sources, these sources must be included in the budget.
The recipient may use the stipend to:
• Rent rehearsal space
• Compensate dancers for time or travel
• Compensate own travel to Annual Event performance
• Compensate composers, musicians, audio editors, videographers, set builders, costume designers or other collaborators for their contribution to the new work
• Purchase props or costume materials for the new work
• Other costs related to the creation and performance of the new work

THE AWARD PANEL & EVALUATION CRITERIA
A panel of professionals outside of the NCDA Board will review the applications. The evaluation criteria will include artistic excellence based on work samples, the creativity and clarity of the applicant’s proposal, and a demonstrated professional commitment to the art form of choreography. The award panel will review only those choreographers that meet all eligibility criteria and include all required application materials.
We anticipate notifying all applicants of the award decision in May 2016.

FINAL REPORT & TAXES
The NCDA Choreography Fellowship recipient will be required to submit a final report and budget to NCDA. For any artist that receives more than $600 through NCDA over the course of a year, we are required to issue a 1099-misc income tax form to them as an independent contractor.
