Artists in Residence

Consistent with its mission to provide a center of dance excellence, BalletNova Center for Dance (BNCD) has the exciting opportunity to partner with leading dance artists in the community.  Through these artist in residency partnerships, emerging and established local artists are given opportunities to rehearse, perform, and grow their support base through use of BNCD's studios and theatre at reduced rates.  In exchange BNCD students have access to quality master classes, performances, and workshops offered through resident company members.
