MEMBER BENEFITS AND PRIVILEGES

Founded in 2017 by Board Member and visionary, Deborah H. Downey, the New Works Fund is entering its third year.  In its first year, it funded the creation of Chant, which premiered in June 2018 with resounding acclaim for its new and powerful work with Gregorian Chant.  In its second year, the Fund supported the creation of Prufrock and Rondo Ma Non Troppo and this year the creation of four dance films and the start of Dwellings for the 2021 season. Members of the New Works Fund are invited to witness the creative process of each ballet as it unfolds from concept, to rehearsal, to stage with exclusive access throughout the year.

New Works Fund Members receive many opportunities to be part of the creative process and interact with guest choreographers and artists.  Members contribute $1000 or more annually.
