The presentation of Forklift Danceworks was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This project is also funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts/Art Works.

Leadership support comes from The Robert F. Schumann Institute of the College of the Environment, and the Menakka and Essel Bailey Junior Fund for the College of the Environment. 

Additional support from the Center for the Arts, the Creative Campus Initiative, the Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life, the Dance Department, SMG Corporate Services, and Physical Plant.

This show is the result of the extraordinary efforts and unwavering support of so many across our campus and community.  Special thanks and deep gratitude to:
