Help Support LiftOff

KickOff the LiftOff campaign video still

Up until now, our LiftOff Creative and Project Development Residency has taken place each summer during August and has supported three to five artists at a time. Over the past few years, we have seen our LiftOff residents achieve great success with the work they created during their time in our TriBeCa studio.

This year, we have decided to expand our residency program to give more artists the opportunity to participate in this process-focused performance incubator. We have added two additional residency months, tripling the number of artists benefiting from free studio space, creative feedback sessions, and project development support.

We believe that expanding our LiftOff residency program will better fit the current needs of artists in our community, aligning with our mission to actively promote emerging forms of innovative dance, music, video, and interdisciplinary performance. But for this expansion to be a success, NDA is asking for your help!

Historically, the operation of the LiftOff Creative and Project Development Residency has been expensive. And, now that we have expanded our program, financially supporting this component of New Dance Alliance is more challenging than ever! Our $5,000 goal will ensure the successful function of New Dance Alliance and the LiftOff Creative and Project Development Residency throughout the summer.
