You Make An Impact

Support from individuals helps us provide our unique programs and powerful curriculum to about 17,000 children in over 150 NYC schools annually, and through our affiliate sites across the US and around the world.   

Most recently, the support of individuals has helped sustain Dancing Classrooms through the tremendous challenges of COVID-19, allowing us to produce online dance resources, transition our program to remote and hybrid learning models,  pay Teaching Artists for their critical work, create new partnerships, and reach young people who desperately need the social, emotional, cultural, and kinesthetic benefits of dance now more than ever. Thank You!
