2017 Bessie Schonberg Legacy Choreography Residency

Founded in 1973 by the late choreographer/philanthropist Patricia N. Nanon, The Yard is singular in its legacy, mission, and island community commitment. Ms. Nanon’s vision of providing creative “new work” residencies and public performance opportunities for choreographers and dance companies - carried forward and amplified since 2011, under the leadership of David R. White, Alison Manning, and Jesse Keller - has had a lasting impact on the national dance field.  Among the many artists that The Yard has supported to date: The Bang Group; Urban Bush Women; Cuba’s Malpaso; Art Bridgman/Myrna Packer; Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE, a Dance Company; The Wondertwins; Raphael Xavier; Susan Marshall; Camille A. Brown and Dancers;  Doug Elkins; Everett Company; Michelle Dorrance; and the ice-skate artists of Montreal’s Le Patin Libre.
