CFA’s DanceLink Fellowship paired students with contemporary dance companies for summer internships to increase their desired skill set and act as dance ambassadors to the Wesleyan student body. Fellowship awardees also designed and executed an evening of performance and audience engagement experiences within the framework of CFA’s Dine/Dance/Discover program and post-show discussions.

Dance: A Moving Canvas offered attendees, particularly those who are new to dance, opportunities to deepen their understanding of choreography and enjoy the beauty of dance. This program provided audiences with guided methods to dive into dance in a festive, informal atmosphere, connecting visual art with dance performance in new and fresh ways. Each Moving Canvas event gave audience members the opportunity to ask questions, play with and change a choreographic work within a gallery setting.
