The Center for Arts in Education has announced its 2013 Fellows for the National Artist Teacher Fellowship grant. Dance teachers make quite the respectable appearance—four were chosen: Christopher Alloways-Ramsey of Boston Arts Academy in Massachusetts; Nicole Mathis-Berman of Art Theatre Entertainment School in California; Sonia Plumb of Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts in Connecticut; and Gina Bolles Sorensen of Coronado School of the Arts in California.
The deadline for 2014 fellowship applications, as we’ve blogged about once before, is swiftly approaching—they’re due this coming Monday, November 18. The 2013 dance fellows submitted projects for their applications as varied as attending the Bates Dance Festival in Maine to collaborating with a mentor on a piece about aging of performance artists. So let your imagination run wild as to how you'd like to use your award! Each award is $5,500 and can be used toward tuition, room and board, travel, mentor fees, purchase of materials—even childcare! Bonus: A separate grant of $1,500 is awarded to the fellow’s school for use in post-fellowship activities. See bostonartsacademy.org/center/natf to apply.
