As we reflect on many bright moments and accomplishments during yet another historic year, there’s still work to be done for NYC youth. Dancewave is calling on you, our beloved and resilient community, to uplift the positive youth development work we have in store for 2022.

Our youth leadership and career development programs provide life-changing opportunities through individualized mentorship, professional networking, empowering programming and access to a diverse wealth of resources. Our Fall Fundraiser seeks to advance Dancewave’s positive youth development programs:

  • Our signature career development and college fair event, Dancewave Through College and Beyond, which has connected 10,000 students nationwide with over $13M in college scholarships.
  • Dancewave's Youth Leadership Council, which empowers NYC youth seeking to serve as agents of change, guiding participants as they carry out youth-designed and youth-led advocacy and service projects in their communities.

We count on you to make this work possible!
Today, we ask you to join us in our campaign to raise $25,000, providing 1,000 youth with barrier-free access to these transformative leadership and career development programs.


About Dancewave:

Dancewave creates quality dance education with a focus on transformation and empowerment. We teach participatory learning, decision-making, empathy and self-expression; helping participants to understand themselves in relationship to other people and larger systems, and to become more active members of their community.

We engage a diverse audience through an expansive portfolio of enriching dance programs that honor the cultural, global and historical significance of these forms. Participants of all ages are uplifted through movement exploration, school residencies, pre-professional training, performance ensembles, career and college readiness events, educator training workshops, leadership development and subsidized studio rentals. We prioritize mentorship and artistic integrity across all programs by partnering with cutting edge artists and providing comprehensive teacher training.
