Dance Education Watch Party

Last week, Mayor de Blasio announced significant cuts to the city’s budget, with drastic reductions impacting the Department of Education. The Mayor created a new advisory council on Arts, Culture, and Tourism that DID NOT include a seat for a representative from our dance community! 

If dance is cut from our children’s curriculum, there will be a ripple effect through the infrastructure of dance education on all levels.

We’ve worked too hard, and we’ve made such incredible progress in supporting #danceforeverychild — we can’t stop now!

Join us to watch this inspiring, New York Emmy-nominated documentary film about dance education in NYC public schools. Then stay for a panel discussion with NYC dance educators and the filmmakers.

May 26 at 4pm EDT
