Immigrants. Dance. Arts.


Thank you for visiting the Immigrants. Dance. Arts. Dance Maker Directory. The directory aims to address a gap in visibility of and knowledge about dance workers making and performing dance by and with immigrant artists in the metropolitan New York City area. By centralizing listings of these artists on our website, which receives heavy traffic from the NYC dance community, and promoting the directory to dance community members and audiences throughout the five boroughs, Dance/NYC aims to increase awareness about immigrant artists.

Join the IDA Network to receive information on integrated dance activity in the New York City metropolitan area.
