Our programming is made possible in part by generous grants from the New York State Council on the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and ArtsWestchester, as well as by generous donations from individual supporters. Most recently, we were awarded $24,590 from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs and $60,000 by the New York State Council on the Arts, with Governor Hochul recognizing the creative work of Accent Dance NYC which “provides the benefits of the arts to both their community and all of New York” while further being at “the cornerstone of our vibrant arts economy.”

Over $10,000
