Elisa Monte Dance is proud to be a 2014 recipient of the Art Works Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. This grant allows EMD to focus on its engagement with the public by providing funding for tours across the US for the upcoming year. We are excited to provide Americans with new opportunities to have profound and meaningful arts experiences, so stay tuned for our Touring & Residencies Schedule to see if we will be performing at a stage near you!
American dance is encyclopedic in scope and international in its aesthetic traditions. The National Endowment for the Arts is committed to advancing the nation's full range of dance artistry. The Arts Endowment assists all forms of professional dance by funding dance companies and presenters, and projects of all sized. Dance projects funded by the Arts Endowment represent a multiplicity of forms, styles, techniques, and histories that come from every continent in the world and the many different styles -- ballet, modern dance, jazz, tap, hip-hop, and other contemporary forms -- that are found in the United States.
