Each year the program admits eight Fellows, six professionals and two
UCLA graduate students, who demonstrate a record of excellence and
productivity, and have a commitment to continuing work in dance/media.
The Fellows will be engaged in seminars, work with guest
speakers/teachers, and develop and produce video projects throughout the
residency. The ten-week, full-time program will take place between
January and March, 2000. Each professional Fellow will be provided with
travel expenses and a stipend of $5,000. Graduate Student Fellows will
receive 12-16 units of credit.
