Grants for International Dancers

The International Organisation for the Transition of Professional Dancers (IOTPD) is the international network of organisations dedicated to offering professional dancers the resources and support they need when facing the end of their performance career and preparing to pursue a new career.

DCD is a founding member of the IOTPD.

The IOTPD offers the Philippe Braunschweig Grant to professional dancers who have had an international career and who don’t qualify for transition support from any one of the countries where they have danced.
