FROM Jan Hanvik:
Dear Dance Enthusiast,
Tlacopac International Artist Residency opened in Mexico City January 29. Only 6% of artist residencies in the world invite performing artists, because performing arts residencies require a large rehearsal space and many bedrooms. Tlacopac has a large wood-floored rehearsal space, 5 bedrooms that can accommodate 8 - 12 dance students or dance company members, and 2 - 3 professors or choreographers and assistants, as well as changing rooms, a steam room and sauna, and rooftops, gardens, patios, and living and sleeping spaces that are spacious and comfortable, in a home in a quiet safe neighborhood in southern Mexico City that attracted many of the most important figures in Mexican and Mexican-American art history. Details and application form at https://crossingbridges.nyc/residencia-artistica-tlacopac-tlacopac-artist-residency/
