ABOUT THE CUNY DANCE INITIATIVE
The CUNY Dance Initiative is a residency program providing rehearsal and performance space to New York City choreographers and dance companies. CDI was developed in response to the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s 2010 report “We Make Do,” which cited the critical need for affordable dance rehearsal space in New York City, and mentioned underutilized performing arts centers and other spaces on CUNY campuses. A successful pilot project in 2013 supporting choreographic residencies and performances on four CUNY campuses prompted CDI to expand its scope. Since then, CDI has subsidized and facilitated a total of 67 residencies.
The CUNY Dance Initiative receives major support from The Mertz Gilmore Foundation, New York Community Trust, and the Howard Gilman Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Jerome Robbins Foundation and the Harkness Foundation for Dance. CDI is spearheaded and administered by The Kupferberg Center for the Arts at Queens College.
