Toni & Uri Honored as 2015 USA Fellows

TU Dance founders Toni Pierce-Sands and Uri Sands were among 37 new USA Fellows for 2015 announced today by United States Artists (USA). As one of the leading honors for artists in the United States, each artist or collaborative receives an award of $50,000 to support their practice and professional development, opening up exciting creative possibilities through the transformative power of unrestricted financial support. The 37 recipients of this year’s awards were selected from over 400 nominated artists living in the United States and US Territories and were chosen by panels of expert peers in each artistic discipline. “USA Fellowships are awarded to innovative artists of all ages and at all stages of their careers, who are nominated for their commitment to excellence and the enduring potential of their work,” said United States Artists CEO Carolina García Jayaram. “We are honored to present this year’s Fellows, a group of artists who were selected through a rigorous, highly competitive process.”
