CA$H Dance

CA$H Dance is a granting program for artists and organizations creating work in the San Francisco Bay Area. CA$H was designed in 1999 by artists for artists through the organizational work of Dancers’ Group and Theatre Bay Area.

The program seeks to support a range of artists and dance organizations that represent the many diversities of Bay Area dance (race, ethnicity, genre, age, gender, orientation, ability, experience, location). Please read Dancers’ Group’s Racial Equity Statement.

The next round of CA$H Dance will take place in Spring 2022. With the uncertainty around the pandemic, we continue to consider the shifts in the dance community and how the CA$H Dance program can support artists going forward. Join as a free community member to be notified when the next round of CA$H is announced.

Spring 2021 CA$H Dance Grantees

Dancers’ Group is pleased to announce it has awarded $105,000 in grants to 30 Bay Area dance artists and organizations. Each grantee will receive $3,500 as part of the Spring 2021 round of CA$H Dance.

Grants go to 16 artists and 14 organizations, featuring dance forms such as turf, kathak, contemporary, traditional Chinese, Korean, Middle Eastern, and Congolese dance, and more. Many of the works focus on the experiences of BIPOC artists, and many projects directly address issues of identity, oppression, and racism.

The CA$H Dance program, which has been supporting dance-makers for the past 20 years, is funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and Grants for the Arts.
