FY 2020-2021 Dance Miami Choreographers' (DMC) Program Guidelines 


Funded by Miami-Dade County, Dance Miami Choreographers' (DMC) Program provides non-matching awards of $10,000 on a competitive basis to nurture the artistic development of Miami-Dade County-based professional choreographers for the creation of new work in all dance forms, including modern dance, ballet and folk. Local choreographers, who have an established body of work, are invited to submit work samples for review by a national panel for selection.

Please note that awards are taxable. If awarded, it is strongly recommended that the selected artist consult his/her own tax advisor or the Internal Revenue Service to determine his/her tax liability.
