SUMMER IN NEW YORK
High school and college students have the opportunity to attend summer intensives with professional dance companies in New York. We cover the cost of room and board for up to eight weeks.
Our students from all five sites have multiple opportunities to perform each year. Productions break boundaries of race and class, giving many audience members their first chance to see someone who looks just like them performing on stage.
BEYOND THE CLASSROOM
We work with a vast network of partner agencies to support and address the needs of families challenged by a lack of healthcare, legal immigration status, and food security.
