Since becoming a program of The Actors Fund in 2016, Career Transition For Dancers (CTFD) has awarded scholarships for certificate, undergrad and grad programs, to 488 dancers around the country, totaling over $1 million. In 2020, many dance artists used the pandemic time out to take action toward building skills or completing formal degree programs for future career moves.
CTFD scholarship winners will describe their journeys from performance to three career arenas: Health and Wellness, Education, and Arts Leadership and Business. With the premise that once a dancer always a dancer, the speakers will report on their discovery of how their dance skills and experience has informed their current fields of influence. Also, they will share the emotional and logistical challenges of forging new paths and developing new chapters of their creative lives.
