Empowering youth in public schools through new Race & Dance Curriculum
Dancewave just completed two pilot Race & Dance residencies, a unique equity program for NYC middle school students that leverages movement as a powerful vehicle for social change.
Our Race & Dance curriculum not only teaches students technical dance skills, but also promotes empowerment by highlighting the historic precedent of BIPOC social dance movements in America.

The exciting program merges two of Dancewave’s cornerstones: high-quality, Social and Emotional Learning-focused dance training with social justice-informed curricula.
2020 WIN! Dancewave was the only college dance fair and audition to produce a live virtual event during the 2020 application season.
and their parents found support and inspiration during our Dancewave Through College & Beyond live virtual college fair and audition event this October. 187 graduating seniors are eligible for admissions and scholarship opportunities as a result.

THIS SPRING: STAND WITH DANCEWAVE
Campaign to create tuition-free Company Program
Our goal is to raise $50,000 to allow us to provide equitable access to our award-winning pre-professional Dancewave Company program. After a year of financial hardship, our vision to offer a tuition-free program for students in need is more crucial than ever before. Each year, we receive applications from students who dream of advancing their dance education but lack the resources to do so.

We invite you to STAND WITH DANCEWAVE and our community by helping us serve more talented young dancers throughout NYC. Please stay tuned for more details on this event.
