What is an organizational partner?

Organizational partners are U.S. nonprofit organizations who have working relationships with dance artists to support the creation and/or touring of the proposed new work. In the development process, an organization may provide a variety of resources, including, but not limited to, residency space, audience for work-in-progress showings, administrative guidance or support, marketplace advocacy, tour planning assistance, and the leveraging of additional funds for the project. It is understood that the need and level of assistance between organizational partners and artists varies from artist to artist, but NDP believes strongly in presenter/artist alliances, which can greatly benefit the development and distribution of dance.
