Rapid Response is a quick-turnaround travel subsidy program to support transit costs for U.S. dance artists in response to international invitations. Grant amounts generally range between $1,000 and $2,500.
Rapid Response will not support:
artist fees or administrative overhead
student invitations, training programs, or auditions
artists or companies who have not received a direct invitation
Selections are made based on multiple criteria, rooted in creating the most opportunities for U.S. dance as a whole. Please recognize that the funding pool for Rapid Response is by its nature limited, and designed as an aid for the artist to independently raise additional funds.
