Ignite Program

The CityDance Ignite program seeks out rising choreographic stars and provides them the resources and support needed to create and present new work. Artists receive marketing, public relations and administrative support, in addition to free rehearsal space at the CityDance Center at Strathmore. Ignite artists have shown their work at world reknown venues including: Atlas Performing Arts Center, The Ailey Citigroup Theater, Dance Place, Embassy of Australia, Embassy of Sri Lanka, Gaertner Performing Arts Center, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and Sidney Harman Hall, to name a few.
