More on dance criticism, a whole institute, actually

Thanks to Douglas Scott, who brought this to my attention:
The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and American Dance Festival (ADF) recently announced they are seeking applicants for the 2010 NEA Arts Journalism Institute for Dance Criticism for professional print, online, radio, and television journalists. The Institute will offer journalists immersion in one of the world's premiere modern dance festivals, held on the campus of Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.

The program is designed for professional journalists interested in refining their skills in writing about dance and analyzing choreography. During the program, fellows will write reviews, observe classes, participate in movement sessions, meet with choreographers, funders, and other dance professionals, and analyze the role of today's dance critic.

To apply, applicants must submit the following materials: a letter specifying reasons for wishing to attend the institute, a resume, three samples of dance criticism, and two references with names, addresses, and phone numbers. All applications must be received by Friday, April 16.
