Giving dance this season and the PERKS for our supporters!

YuyaoLing_Dance_Parade_Grandstand

In the coming months, we are inspired by our 2019 theme chosen by the NYC Dance Community.

Our theme Movement of the People is poignant recognition of the vital role dance serves for health and culture. In our 13th year, we continue to advocate for a stronger dance community by including everyone: All peoples and cultures, foreign and domestic, all rhythms and styles, ballet to bhangra to butoh to breakdanced, danced by all ages, from the very young to the elderly.

Movement of the People is what’s known as the oldest art form. We simultaneously recognize our country as one of immigrants and also pay homage to indigenous cultures, recalling those who danced long before ships arrived on our shores. At a time when recent immigrants are vulnerable we celebrate and support our native and immigrant communities as our non-profit organization places teaching artists in schools and community centers year round.  Then we demonstrate diversity by coming together Saturday May 18th in the city’s largest dance event to showcase over 80 unique styles of dance.

Last year, with your help, we served over one thousand youth and 170 seniors with free classes and a chance to participate in the Dance Parade. Our programs funded teaching artists who danced with kids and seniors to support healthier, happier lives.

The free education programs, Parade and Festival don’t just happen by themselves– So, this year, as you get ready to enjoy our Spring events – please, don’t just dance, support us financially if you can.

Your contribution means so much to us and we are grateful for every tax-deductible donation, no matter how small.

Thank you so much for your support!
