Los Angeles, CA
This Quality of Life grant will help to support the Bethune II - Dance Concert and Dramatic Arts Gala, a full-length work created and supervised by Lead Choreographer-Director Zina Bethune. Ms. Bethune will supervise a production team and cast of 24 differently-abled performing artists including differently-abled youth and young adult wheelchair performers. The project will establish a 12-member wheelchair dance corps, expanding the Bethune II troupe from the current 12 members to 24 in total. Grant funds will help to support programmatic personnel expenses; specifically for the differently-abled youth performers. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award # 1U59DD000338).
