DCW received a NEA grant to mentor BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) artists. The participants were shortlisted from the three LA based dance festivals with the potential for a strong cinematic impact on the choreography by partnering them with experienced, skilled dance filmmakers as mentors. DCW is a producer on the project, and left all artistic decisions up to the teams. The 2022 selected artists are Letxia Cordova, Marquisa Gardner, Irishia Hubbard, Alyssa Junious, Austyn Rich, RouRou Ye. The Mentors are Cara Hagan, Robin Gee, Roma Flowers, Yolanda Guadarrama.
