New International grant helps dancers prepare for life after dance and honours IOTPD Founding President


Dancers with international careers will now have the opportunity to apply for funding to help them prepare for life after dance. The International Organization for the Transition of Professional Dancers (IOTPD) announced today at the FIA congress in Toronto that it is creating the Philippe Braunschweig Grant in honour of the organization’s Founding President.

Mr. Braunschweig was passionate about dance and dancers, and tireless in his efforts to improve the situation of dancers facing career transition. He died in 2010. Paul Bronkhorst, IOTPD President said, “Philippe made a significant difference for dance and dancers around the world. Our world is a better place because of his efforts.”

The annual IOTPD Philippe Braunschweig Grant will be awarded for the first time in June 2013 and will provide a transitioning dancer with up to € 3,000 to help them retrain for a second career. For dancers with international careers, this type of support is essential, as many have not danced long enough in any one country to be eligible for support from a national transition program. This award was developed specifically to provide assistance those dancers who may otherwise ‘fall through the cracks’. Further details and the grant application are available through the IOTPD website www.iotpd.org
