The Dancers' Fund offers short-term financial assistance to Chicago dance professionals facing critical health issues which result in a significant financial emergency or catastrophic hardship. Those who may apply include company dancers, freelance dancers, choreographers, full-time dance instructors, musical theater chorus dancers, full-time class and rehearsal musicians, and full-time administrative, production and technical personnel.
