We are a small foundation whose mission is to support creative activity in the arts by providing grants to choreographers who wish to commission original music for their new works. We only fund grants where we are the sole commissioner, and the amount of these grants are scaled to the size and complexity of the project. Secondarily we also wish to encourage live music in performance of these works. Special attention is given to cross cultural and “trans-disciplinary” work.

We only underwrite the music composition cost, although in certain cases we will assist in the production expenses for the music. We cannot help with any other parts of your budget, primarily for economic reasons.

We are a hands-off outfit. We have no stylistic axes to grind. Our grants are awarded on a rolling basis. If we have cash and you fit our criteria, the money is yours.

We have included videos in this channel of some of our commissions. Enjoy!
