About Us

Established in 2018, Accent Dance NYC is a movement-based educational and professional performance initiative rooted in the spirit of collaboration and cultural convergence.

Through a unique collective of multidisciplinary and multicultural artists, Accent Dance NYC provides a dance-based educational program serving schools and arts education organizations in New York City and neighboring areas which bolsters children’s cognitive skills, discipline, learning and communication, while professional choreographic initiatives build bridges among artists from all dance disciplines and backgrounds. Creating new works through a lens that magnifies the creative process and the use of movement as a common language, Accent Dance NYC has commissioned award-winning choreographers and collaborators, and has performed on stages throughout New York City and beyond. In its first two years, Accent Dance NYC has reached over 1,500 school-aged children with its dance programming, impacting the younger generation to move, dance, and dream.
