$10,000 Scholarship for Mid-Career Choreographers from Ausdance

Applications Close May 31st

Ausdance National invites eligible choreographers who can demonstrate the value of the fellowship to their own choreographic development, practice or career to submit an expression of interest. Applications for this biennial fellowship close Friday May 31st 2019.

Dame Peggy van Praagh was the founding artistic director of The Australian Ballet (1962). She dedicated much of her career to fostering young Australian choreographers in ballet and contemporary dance.

The $10,000 will be awarded to a mid-career choreographer (35 years and over) who demonstrate their support for choreographic development that advances the profession. The next fellowship will be awarded at the 2019 National Dance Forum in Darwin, 9-10 August.
