"We end up zooming out, thinking the more generic we get, the easier it will be for people to relate. I’ve realized over time that the more specific I get, the easier it is for people to relate. If I can tell someone’s story and tell people why this person is feeling the way they’re feeling in that moment, that creates empathy."
Rovaco Dance Company is honored to be a Dance/NYC Dance Advancement Fund 2022-23 grantee! The fund is made possible by the generous support of Howard Gilman Foundation and Ford Foundation! Recipients receive 2-year general operating support annually as well as professional development opportunities.
