6. Budget: This is a critical part of the application. Make sure you are allocating enough funds towards maintaining a professional rate for all collaborators. YLDE suggests using the following guideline for dance artist fees – The CADA/West recommended MINIMUM for an hourly wage is $30.00/hr for professional artists. Materials, mentorship/consultation, travel costs, and specific requirements should also be considered in the budget. Note: YLDE covers up to 40 hours of studio rental outside of $4,000 artist fee.
