Local Dance Commissioning Project





The Local Dance Commissioning Project (LDCP) centers the artistic and professional advancement of the local dance community by providing resources and support to a locally based artist with the goal of serving as a stepping stone for artists to reach the next step in their artistic trajectory. Through LDCP, the Kennedy Center will support the production of the artist’s work in our venues (including $20,000 monetary support) and will work closely with each awardee to further advance that individual’s professional and artistic goals throughout the duration of the award year.
