One of Accent Dance NYC’s fifth grade students from our dance residency at the Casita Maria Center for Arts and Education explains best why this programming is important:
"I was very inspired to know that professional dancers, from around the world, would come and share their talent with us, at Casita Maria, allowing my fellow classmates, and I to learn about different studies of dance . . . Bringing Accent Dance to the community in the South Bronx, where families live under a low income, and not having the money to pay for dance classes for their kids, was an amazing opportunity . . . Accent Dance showed me how to become more confident, and to be myself. What we learned and took with us from the program, is that through dance, we enter a whole other world, where we can express ourselves through movement."
Accent Dance NYC can continue to bring high-level dance performance and educational residencies to schoolchildren in New York City and lower Westchester with your contribution.
