Joyce Theater

The Joyce Theater Foundation Creative Residencies support the dance development efforts of choreographers as they create and prepare new work.

Designed to give choreographers the time and space to experiment in a supportive environment, the residencies focus on early and mid-career choreographers. The residencies include the following benefits:

  • 240 hours of space for research and creative development
  • The assistance of a choreographic advisor to help shape, edit, and provide feedback
  • A paid self-selected rehearsal assistant
  • The opportunity to show the work in front of an invited audience
  • $25,000 commission towards the creation of the work developed during the residency

Emery LeCrone  and Amy Seiwert are the recipients of The Joyce Theater Foundation’s 2016-2017 Creative Residency program.
