Vanderbilt to Help Steer Dance Funding

Great Performances at Vanderbilt and its director will help the National Dance Project set the agenda for dance in America when it becomes one of 10 “hub sites” that guides the organization.

“I am pleased that we are now in the room as one of the top 10 curators,” says Bridgette Kohnhorst, director of Great Performances at Vanderbilt. Kohnhorst will serve on the hub committee for two years beginning next January, meeting three times per year with other hub directors to review proposals, make funding recommendations and discuss program policy.

The National Dance Project is a grant program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, one of six regional arts agencies nationwide that funds and advocates creation and distribution of artistic expression.
