Ephrat Asherie, Caleb Teicher, and Netta Yerushalmy as recipients of City Center’s 2019 Choreography Fellowships.
Initiated in 2011, the New York City Center Choreography Fellowship provides choreographers with 150 hours of free studio space, a generous stipend, and administrative support from the City Center staff in areas such as fundraising, marketing, and touring—essential components to their continued success.
“Over the past 75 years, City Center has been a home for dance masters, including George Balanchine, Merce Cunningham, and Robert Joffrey. This season's Choreography Fellows represent the future of dance and City Center’s next 75 years, and we are honored to add them to the growing list of influential dance makers who count City Center among their creative homes,” said President and CEO Arlene Shuler. “We know that space, time, and administrative support are vital for busy artists and we’re thrilled that City Center can provide these resources and serve as a creative home for them throughout the year.”
Past City Center Choreography Fellows include Gemma Bond, Brian Brooks, Camille A. Brown, Ronald K. Brown, Liz Gerring, Beth Gill, John Heginbotham, Jessica Lang, Gabrielle Lamb, Emery LeCrone, Pontus Lidberg, Rashaun Mitchell, Silas Riener, Pam Tanowitz, Shen Wei, and Reggie Wilson.
City Center’s Choreography Fellowship program is supported by the Mertz Gilmore Foundation and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
