2021 McKnight Choreographer Fellows and 2021 McKnight Dancer Fellows

The Cowles Center for Dance & the Performing Arts announces the 2021 McKnight Choreographer Fellows and 2021 McKnight Dancer Fellows. The Fellows will individually receive $25,000 to set aside time for study, reflection, experimentation, exploration, to take advantage of an opportunity or work on a new project.

McKnight Artist Fellowships deliver significant financial support to mid-career individuals whose body of work demonstrates artistic excellence. The McKnight Fellowships for Choreography and Dance are designed to enrich and strengthen our community by acknowledging the accomplishments of individual choreographers and dancers and providing for their artistic growth.
