Move(NYC) Foundation Inc.
MOVE|NYC|'s overarching goal is to strengthen the field of dance by cultivating a more diverse and equitable dance community, one that better reflects the multicultural world we live in today. The goal is to empower artists: to actively develop thinkers, explorers, and risk takers who will not only enter the dance profession, but lead it.
MOVE|NYC| has grown rapidly in the past four years. It began as a three-week Summer Dance Intensive serving 30 young dancers, ages 13 to 18, from New York City. To date, MOVE|NYC| has developed into a robust, year-round artistic training and mentorship hub serving 100 dancers between the ages of 13 and 21; develops teaching and performance opportunities for 30 diverse professional artists; and provides free and low cost community based performances that make art accessible and vital to over 1,000 people in New York City.
