An important part of the mission of the Gigglefeet Dance Festival is to provide a creative and supportive environment, fostering the creative development of dancers, choreographers, and technical theatre personnel. A limited number of grants are available for this purpose, with preference given to activities that most directly benefit the Ketchikan dance community. The Arts Council, First City Players and Ketchikan Theatre Ballet sponsor and make possible the Gigglefeet Dance Festival.
Please return Grant application by July 13th at 5pm to the Arts Council, 330 Main Street. If you have questions call the Arts Council at 225-2211.
