Announced at the memorial service for the Tony-winning artist in March, the Fellowship honors the legacy of the celebrated choreographer, teacher, mentor, and star of the legendary 1996 Encores! production of Chicago. The Fellowship expands City Center’s current Career Pathways programs (Administrative Apprenticeships, Directing Fellowship, and Youth Externships) by providing one dance professional each season with the opportunity to develop their choreographic and teaching careers as part of the New York City Center team. Specifically supporting career pathways for women, non-binary artists, and artists of color underrepresented in the field, the Ann Reinking Encores! Choreography Fellowship provides access to City Center’s musical theater season, as well as the Education & Community Engagement Department and its programs.
The Fellowship runs from September 2023 through June 2024 and is a full-time paid position. Compensation also includes an artistic stipend allocated for classes and workshops, studio rentals, and other career development efforts.
Applications are due by 6pm on Wednesday, August 9 and can be submitted at NYCityCenter.org/fellowships.
