Story

Dancewave calls upon our community to envision a world in which dance, as a human right, is available to all regardless of income or experience. Our $30,000 fundraising goal will allow us to serve approximately 1,200 new community members, starting with those who have been historically denied access to the arts.

Our impact is far-reaching and growing. Now, and in the coming years, we will:

  • Facilitate successful college and career transitions, showing young people the power of becoming leaders in the arts
  • Remove financial barriers to transformative dance education and mentorship, prioritizing equitable access for students from under-resourced communities
  • Close programming gaps in NYC schools where the arts are not a curricular priority, incorporating positive youth development practices linked to essential life skills
  • Nurture emerging artists’ and educators’ professional development by providing incubator space, institutional resources and training to support their practices

From NYC public school students taking their first dance class, college-bound students auditioning for scholarships, to professional artists seeking to advance their careers–-all of this is possible at Dancewave!

A donation today is an investment in the long term care of our local neighborhoods, where the arts provide a vital infusion of joy, hope and opportunity. Gifts of any size are deeply appreciated and fully tax-deductible.
