The Dancewave Gala, one of Brooklyn’s premiere cultural fundraisers, brings together prominent individuals in the forefront of arts, education, politics, philanthropy, and business. The 2017 Spring Gala, taking place on April 26, 2017 at Roulette, Brooklyn from 6-9PM, raises awareness and funds for Dancewave’s primary mission: providing all NYC youth access to a supportive dance experience that embraces and encourages individuality and equips students with the life skills to unlock their full potential as people and community members. Public support for Dancewave’s mission enables Dancewave to provide youth development through dance: bringing dance into public schools, offering affordable dance classes to Brooklyn youth, and providing teens with opportunities to learn the work of world-renowned choreographers by performing in pre-professional companies and ensembles.
Dancewave is the dance education nonprofit that focuses on the development of the whole person through a dance experience accessible to all. Our unique model combines rigorous training with artistic integrity, and access for all, in a supportive environment. Students are mentored by accomplished dance professionals, which allows for personal growth as well as superior dance education. Dancers have the opportunity to join our pre-professional dance companies, where they gain technical proficiency and self-confidence through training, rehearsals, and performances.
