THANK YOU to everyone who has come to this donate page.
1 year later, Chen Dance Center is still displaced from the fire with no office or studio space. Over 40 years of Costumes, Sets and Props from H.T. Chen & Dancers repertoire was never recovered.
Despite the fire and pandemic, we are continuing to provide students with arts education through online classes.

On the eve of January 23, 2020 a 5-alarm fire tore through 70 Mulberry Street, home to Chen Dance Center. The top half of the building collapsed and the remainder is water and smoke damaged. Thankfully none of our staff were onsite during the fire.
The historic building, formerly PS 23, is home to numerous cultural and social service organizations including ours, Chen Dance Center. For over 40 years, Chen Dance Center has been dedicated to serving the Asian-American community and the New York City dance community.
While our programs and activities at 70 Mulberry have been suspended, select programs are available online:
Fall Dance classes begin September 12, 2020 online.
H.T. Chen & Dancers is offering online Workshops, free for NYC & NYS Schools this Fall.
At a time like this, we ask for your assistance to help Chen Dance Center get back on its feet. Please share this with your community.
