“The collaboration between the Howard Gilman Foundation and BalletNext drives two of our mission objectives: working with today’s leading artists to build a robust repertory of new choreographic works and to test new models for distribution, marketing, and audience development for emerging dance companies. The formula for building a full-time dance company that consistently commissions, performs, and tours new work has irrevocably changed in the new millennium. We look forward to working closely with the Foundation to implement solutions that address some of the key opportunities and challenges that face our industry.”
