On Screen: Beyond Quarantine, Our Annual Fundraiser

Our virtual fundraiser and holiday event to support Accent Dance NYC’s educational programming and virtual educational performance went off without a hitch. We were pleased to greet over 60 guests and we raised a significant portion of our fundraising goal.

The entire event is posted below. Please take some time to watch it and consider making a donation. We are dedicated to bringing arts education programs to kids in the neighborhoods hardest hit by the pandemic. We need your help to continue this vital outreach.

Funds raised in connection with this event will support Accent Dance NYC’s ongoing educational initiatives, including a soon-to-be-filmed virtual educational performance featuring the work of NYT’s dance-videographer Angelo Vasta.
