DANCE THEATER WORKSHOP, New York City, a leading contemporary arts organization devoted to connecting artists with audiences, works to identify and encourage talented and culturally diverse artists and companies; to stimulate and develop a broader audience for these artists and their works; and to create opportunities for artists to participate in an interactive community laboratory for the working imagination and its essential, practical application to the world that surrounds us. The First Light Commissioning Program provides funds to emerging choreographers and performance artists to make new work for presentation at DTW. The Jerome Foundation made a two-year commitment of $70,000 to the program. In addition, the Foundation made a commitment of $75,000 in support of artists services and general operating expenses during the three years of a proposed capital campaign. This is a highly unusual commitment for the Foundation.
