MOVE|NYC| is a multi-pillared arts organization whose mission is to cultivate greater diversity and equity within the dance profession and beyond. It holds the vital role of shaping highly-gifted dance artists and leaders at specific milestones in their career and actualizes this responsibility by reducing financial barriers to dance training and providing resources for career advancement--primarily serving historically marginalized and underrepresented dancers. Through its core and ancillary programs, MOVE|NYC| is committed to artistic excellence, leadership, mentorship, community engagement, equity, and social change.


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.
