10 MAY 2018 / The Center for Ballet and the Arts Announces New Fellows

On Wednesday, May 9th, 2018, The Center for Ballet and the Arts at New York University (CBA) announced 27 artists and scholars who will serve as CBA Fellows in the 2018-19 academic year.

The group features distinguished individuals in a range of disciplines, including author Cécile Feza Bushidi, lighting designer Brandon Stirling Baker, choreographer Chase Brock, choreographer, filmmaker, and dancer Pontus Lidberg, and scholar Janice Ross, among others.

Entering its fifth year, the CBA Fellowship Program invites scholars and artists from the field of ballet and its related arts and sciences to work at The Center on their own scholarly and artistic projects. The program provides fellows with a stipend, access to studio and office space, an apartment in some cases, and time away from daily life to focus on their project – a book, a ballet, a film, a digital lecture series, or other work of their imagining related in some way to ballet.

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation provides general operating support for CBA.

The Center for Ballet and the Arts at New York University is an international institute for scholars and artists of ballet and its related arts and sciences. It exists to inspire new ideas and new ballets, expanding the way we think about the art form’s history, practice and performance in the 21st century.
