Dance in NYC Public Schools and Dancing through College & Beyond


Arts education can be a powerful tool in reducing risky behaviors and preventing crime in at-risk youth. Arts education programs have the potential to foster a much needed sense of self-esteem, positive self-image, discipline and the development of job skills. Additionally dance education is proven to have physical, cognitive and aesthetic benefits, providing students with the capacity to develop fine motor skills, rhythmic patterning, interpreting and analyzing movement and self-reflection.

Dancewave offers various programs and events to help students from schools and colleges pursue their dream to be dancers.
