The Center for Ballet and Arts (CBA) is offering a residency fellowship program for artists and scholars across disciplines to work on projects that expand the way we think about the history, practice, and performance of dance. Applicants are not required to be experts in dance but must have an interest in engaging with the art form. 

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Scholars or artists pursuing an original project related to dance. Past fellows have come from dozens of disciplines as wide-ranging as history, design, philosophy, visual arts, religion, literature, and more.
  • Applicants applying with scholarly projects (e.g. journal articles, monographs) must have a Ph.D.
  • Applicants must show exceptional promise and/or have demonstrated significant accomplishments in their field. CBA encourages applicants from all career stages to apply.
  • Dance expertise is not required.
  • Students (as of September 2021) are not eligible.


  • Fellowship timing and duration depend on individual fellow needs and project scopes. Prior residencies have run between four and sixteen weeks. 
  • The residency must occur during NYU’s academic year (September 2021 – May 2022).


  • Work at CBA for the majority of your residency.
  • Present your work in a seminar to current and alumni fellows.
  • Attend CBA events, including weekly seminars and CBA’s public programs.
  • Give and receive feedback, collaborate, and otherwise engage with your cohort.
  • Submit feedback on your fellowship as requested.

Note: At this time, The Center cannot commit to additional funding for collaborators. If a fellow decides to work with collaborators (e.g. designers, musicians, dancers), the fellow is expected to pay those collaborators out of his or her own fellowship.


  • $750 per week.
  • Access to CBA’s community of 150+ artists and scholars.
  • Use of CBA's dance studio, offices, and conference rooms.
  • Housing, as needed and available.
  • Round trip transportation to and from New York City.
  • J-1 visa facilitation.

The CBA Fellowship Program does not support:

  • Projects in arts administration. 
  • Projects focused on the applicant’s personal memoir or autobiography.
  • Projects involving giving dance classes. 
  • Projects reviewing prior work, such as:
  • editing, digitizing or organizing archives. 
  • editing films or book anthologies.

About the Center for Ballet and Arts (CBA):

The Center for Ballet and the Arts at New York University is an international research institute for scholars and artists of ballet and its related arts and sciences. It exists to inspire new ideas and new dances, expanding the way we think about the art form’s history, practice, and performance in the 21st century. The Center is designed to accomplish two things: first, to bring to the art of ballet new ideas and the full resources of a major research university; second, to bring ballet into the university as a serious subject of study and research—to define it as a field in the history of culture.
