Dance CA$H Grant Deadline – May 9

Bay Area Choreographers:

The Spring deadline for Theatre Bay Area’s CA$H Grant is rapidly approaching!

Postmarked: May 9, 2011

Application guidelines and materials can be found at:  http://www.theatrebayarea.org/programs/cashgrants.jsp

CA$H is a grants program designed to support professionally oriented dance artists and small companies with budgets under $100,000.  (There is also a separate sister grant for theater companies.) Its purpose is to spark a creative surge throughout Northern California’s theatre and dance community by providing grants to artists ($2,000) and small-sized organizations ($4,000).  These grants are funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund/Grants for the Arts.

Funding decisions are made by a rotating five-member panel.  I have served as a member on this panel and highly recommend it to anyone that has applied or is thinking about applying for this grant.  All you have to do is attend a CA$H Grant workshop and panelist training with Theatre Bay Area and sign up.  Your name will be added to a pool of panelist that are chosen a few months before each deadline.
