2012 Gary Parks Scholarship

DCA Now Accepting Applications for 2012 Gary Parks Scholarship

The Dance Critics Association is pleased to offer the 2012 Gary Parks Scholarships, named for the late, well-loved reviews editor for Dance Magazine. His position there made him a point of contact for dance writers around the world, and a friend and mentor to many people in the field. This scholarship, to the DCA annual conference, is designed to encourage that same sense of collegiality.

This year the DCA will offer two scholarships of $500 for emerging or experienced writers to attend the annual conference in New York City, June 22-24, 2012. (DCA will make fewer awards if criteria are not met.) The DCA will be held at the Alvin Ailey Dance Center.

DCA is awarded a grant from the Capezio® Ballet Makers Dance Foundation

We are pleased to announce that the Capezio® Ballet Makers Dance Foundation has awarded the Dance Critics Association $1000 to support our Kamikaze dance writing workshop at our next conference. The proposal submitted to the Capezio® Ballet Makers Dance Foundation was a portion of a larger proposal that has been submitted to the National Endowment for the Arts.

Welcome to the new DCA blog

We have now completely reinstalled the WordPress software, and everything seems to be working (finally!).

We will initially be using this part of the DCA web site to post member news. This is a work in progress, so have some patience while we work out the kinks.
