The Bates Dance Festival is a member of the National Performance Network which supports our residencies and performances with funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Ford Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts (a federal agency).

Residencies and performances are also made possible with support from the  National Endowment for the Arts, Art At Work program, and the Expeditions and National Dance Project programs of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies.

The Inside Dance Lecture Series is supported, in part, by the Maine Humanities Council and the Maine Arts Commission.
