If you have any questions, please email Andrea Salvatore at [email protected] ----------------- The Center for Ballet and the Arts (CBA) 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 ballets, expanding the way we think about the art form's history, practice, and performance in the 21st century. The CBA Fellowship Program awards residencies to artists and scholars across all disciplines to develop self-directed projects that expand the way we think about the history, practice, and performance of dance. Fellows are selected through an open application process. They are not required to be experts in ballet but must have an interest in engaging with the art form. Fellows receive office and studio space, financing, and time to pursue rigorous work. There is no expectation of a finished product. CBA Fellows are encouraged to ask questions and take risks. They gain colleagues they would not otherwise encounter. These engagements between artists and scholars, two communities that do not often intersect, strengthen and deepen the work of both.
