Yard Receives Grant

The Yard has received a generous grant from the New York city based Jerome Robbins Foundation, a premier dance funding organization which supports dance, theater and associated arts. Jerome Robbins was the original choreographer of both the Broadway and film versions of West Side Story and the creator of more than 60 ballets in the repertory of New York City Ballet and companies worldwide. The foundation has awarded this grant in recognition of The Yard’s contribution to the art of choreography, both in its function as a presenting organization and as a nurturing ground for artists.
