CA$H Dance

Spring 2021 Application Now Closed

Deadline: Wed, Apr 7

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.

NEW — The CA$H Dance grant can be used for a project, to support your artistic process generally, or to support you as an artist/organization. This is often referred to as general operating support.

CA$H Grants for Artists and Organizations are $3,500. For more information read the Spring 2021 CA$H Dance Guidelines.
