The Jerome Robbins Dance Division oversees the Dance Research Fellowship, an annual cohort of dance scholars and artists invited to research a specific aspect of dance. Focused this year on the theme of dance and democracy, the symposium is the culmination of work undertaken during a six-month fellowship cycle that began in July 2021. Attendance is free and audience members are welcome to enjoy one, multiple, or all presentations. Registration in advance is required and can be completed here. The Zoom webinar link will be emailed two days prior to the event, with a reminder link on the day of the symposium.

The Jerome Robbins Dance Division gratefully acknowledges the support of the Anne H. Bass Foundation, the Geraldine Stutz Trust, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Frederick Loewe Foundation, Nancy Dalva, and the Committee for the Jerome Robbins Dance Division for the 2021-22 Dance Research Fellowship.
