Junior Committee

We are not currently accepting applications. Check back in the spring of 2018! 

Expected Activities

JComm is involved with several projects during the year. In the 2016-17 term, these included internal professional development sessions, attending a weekend-long Undoing Racism workshop through the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond, organizing a panel during the Dance/NYC Symposium, and hosting a spring Town Hall discussion. Projects may vary from term to term. Members can expect to find a supportive network of peers in the dance field and enriching dialogue about dance in New York City through the lens of their cultural communities.

Why You Should Apply

Junior Committee members past and present have cited their years on the committee as inspiring as well beneficial — both personally and professionally. Here are just a few of the many highlights of service:

  • Opportunities to present and facilitate panels or discussions at events such as the Dance/NYC Symposium, City Council hearings, and Junior Committee Town Halls.
  • Participating in candid and stimulating discussions that move the dance field forward.
  • Becoming a part of a networked group willing to share skills, resources, experience and contacts with one another.

*Please note: JComm does not accept applications from candidates who will be undergraduate students during their year on the Committee. If you are graduating in May, you are welcome to apply. JComm also does not accept applications from candidates who will turn 31 during their year of service.
