BOSTON | An initiative of the New England Foundation for the Arts, the National Dance Project Touring Awards program provides grants of up to $40,000 to dance companies to support national tours of new dance works. The deadline is October 7, 2013.

Touring Awards are automatically given to all NDP Production Grant recipients in the United States and are designated for artist fees and travel. In addition, up to ten works created independently of the Production Grant process will receive Touring Awards through a competitive application process each fall.

Choreographers and companies are eligible to apply. Agents, artist managers, and presenters may also apply on behalf of an artist, company, or project.

To be eligible for an award, projects must be in an advanced stage of development and be ready for touring at the beginning of the NDP touring season (between June 1 and August 31 of the following year); involve presentations of dance works of genuine imagination and originality by artists of recognized skill and accomplishment; and be able to demonstrate that at least three U.S.-based presenters from at least two states will present the work on tour.

Complete program guidelines and application materials are available at the NEFA Web site.
