Dancer Fund

Dance Source Houston is thrilled to provide direct support to freelance dance artists who have received payment from choreographers and/or organizations for their project-based, performance related work through the Dancer Fund. Dance Source Houston will match up to $500 in payment(s) for performance project artist fees. Dancers may apply more than once to receive the $500 maximum award. A separate application must be submitted for each project.

The Dancer Fund is generously supported by Houston Endowment.

A total of $25,000 has been awarded to a total of 60 freelance dancers for performance activity taking place August 1, 2018, through June 30, 2019. The submission period has been closed because the funds have been depleted.
