Campaign for Our Future Home

In 2017, Dancewave broke ground on brand new community arts and culture center at 182 4th Avenue in Gowanus, Brooklyn and in June 2019, we opened the New Dancewave Center!

Designed by Studio Joseph and built in collaboration with the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs and Department of Design & Construction, the New Dancewave Center welcomes thousands of youth, families and community members annually in the 3,600 square foot space. To date, we have raised 4.9 million in pledges and donations from a combination of individuals, government agencies and foundations toward the total $5.2 million needed for the completion of our future home.

The doors are open, but there’s still more to do! Donate today to support the continued development of the New Dancewave Center.
