This unrestricted fund supports innovative programming, diverse guest artists, and returning alumni for teaching, performing, and choreographing.


Scholarships allow students to participate in festivals and workshops around the world for experiences that can be a turning point in their education.


This fund supports guest artist residencies, a tradition of the Department of Dance initiated in the late 1950s by Margaret Erlanger, the seminal founder of Dance at Illinois. This gift was made in 2022 upon Erkert’s retirement by the Dance Partners Advancement Committee (DPAC) in honor of her innovative leadership and lasting imprint on the Department of Dance.
