Join us at the Dancewave Spring Gala!
Thursday, May 8, 2014
Held at the BAM Fisher, we're celebrating community, the arts, and dance. Special honorees include: Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, Dance Magazine Editor at Large Wendy Perron, and Brooklyn Boulders Co-Founder Lance Pinn.
The Dancewave Gala is one of Brooklyn’s premiere cultural fundraisers reaching 200 attendees from New York’s community supporters and arts philanthropists. Dancewave holds this special event in order to raise awareness and funds for its mission to bring high quality dance into public schools, offer innovative and affordable dance classes to Brooklyn youth, and give teens the opportunity to train with world-famous choreographers through its five pre-professional performing companies.
This year's gala features an exclusive rooftop cocktail reception, dance performances by Dancewave's own DC I dance company, and an awards ceremony followed by dessert.
This year's Gala is held at BAM Fisher in Brooklyn.

Dancewave's ongoing objective is to provide a larger constituency of youth and vulnerable populations throughout NYC opportunities to benefit from learning and creating dance.
Dancewave brings together a diverse community of young people through dance education and performance. We believe that dance provides a forum for meaningful, positive exchange between kids of all backgrounds and cultures. Since its inception in 1995, Dancewave has created programs that are challenging and artistically substantial, and which address young people's needs for individual achievement and group identity. Our pre-professional dance education and performance training programs offer young people a rare combination of high-level artistic integrity, educational rigor, and nurturing support
