Independent and Self-Employed Dancers Resilience Fund

Canadian Dance Assembly (CDA) has received funding from the Canada Performing Arts Workers Resilience Fund to bring direct assistance to independent and self-employed dancers.  

The fund is for dancers who primarily focus on performance.

With the funding received, we aim to offer a total of $2500 each to 1500 applicants. We will close the fund on December 16, 2022.

Dancers from Québec should contact Fondation des artistes du Québec. Choreographers, dramaturges, rehearsal directors, lighting designers, technical directors, stage managers, production managers, and costume designers should apply to The AFC.


We prioritize those who the pandemic has hardest hit: IBPOC, racialized people, 2SLGBTQIA+, deaf people, persons with disabilities, disabled folks, official minority language speakers, rural and underserved areas, and do so with an intersectional approach to best serve marginalized dancers in need.
