Hi, my name is Ella Rosewood. I’m a teacher at IS 347, an under-resourced Title 1 Middle School in Bushwick Brooklyn. Please help me bring the joy of African and Hip-Hop dance to my 6th and 8th graders. Your contribution will fund two dance teachers for 10 weeks. This campaign will cover the teaching artist fees and cost of t-shirts to be worn when my students join me to show off their moves in the 10th Annual Dance Parade on Broadway in May! Click HERE to contribute to the campaign!
Since 2008 when the country suffered from the Global Financial Crisis, the non-profit organization “Dance Parade” has provided free dance residencies and workshops to schools and community centers throughout the five New York City boroughs.
In Bushwick, my 8th graders will receive 10 weeks of classes in which they will learn the cultural movements of the Congo in West Africa with Fusha Dance Company. An after school residency with Brooklyn Gatorettes, will teach my dance company students hip-hop choreography. Both groups will represent their school on Broadway for the 10th Annual Dance Parade on Saturday May 21st.
Gratitude NYC is an events production company that supports events in Bushwick. For every dollar raised, they have pledged to match it!
